Jennifer has been deeply influenced by the work of the Abstract artists, prominently the German Expressionists and the Abstract Expressionists.
Several artists who have made a lasting impression on her include Paul Cezanne, Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning ,Franz Kline & Sally Gabori.
Her deep interest in primitive art and archaeology developed a great respect and admiration for the use of simple forms and materials to express complex ideas.
The Abstract Expressionist painter, Helen Frankenthaler once said ..... " One really beautiful wrist motion, that is synchronized with your head and heart , and you have it. It looks as if it were born in a minute."
Jennifer also has a deep interest in the relationship that humans have with animals, in particularly with the dog. This idea of the omniscient being has provided the basis for many of her artworks.
The simple act of working with various materials to express an idea that someone else might enjoy is simply joyous to me.
