JENNIFER 

Artist Statement

Born 1961 in Cape Town, South Africa.

With a National Diploma in Ceramic Design and Sculpture, Jennifer left her home town for a year in Barcelona before re-locating on a permanent basis to the UK. London was her first port of call where she set up a studio in 1992. In 2001 Jennifer was seduced by the rural idyll of Oxfordshire.

Jennifer is a mixed media artist whose is influenced by mark making, layering and mapping of the journeys she has made both living and working in many countries abroad.

"My work is based on our journey of life, its layers and strata. Through time and pressure beauty is created. We mine the soul to find the precious things. Life refines and polishes our history and the choices we have made. Our layers and compartments are filled with experiences and memories."

The study of clay has influenced all her art in the use of texture and form. She uses earth pigments, silver and oils. The resin element creates the contrast between the dynamic of earth and water.

Her work found in private collections, corporate headquarters, luxury hotels and super yachts in Europe, Russia, Japan, the Middle East, USA, South Africa, Barbados and Fiji. Jennifer works with art consultants as well as is represented by UK galleries.
