Jen’s subject matter includes botanicals, seascapes, café scenes and the figure. She continues to work and explore these genres through intense colour, a heavy application of thick textured paint and energetic brush strokes. Her paintings are rich with oil paint and texture and sometimes take weeks to dry.
Her style is a wonderful and unique combination of representational and impressionistic, allowing the viewer to look deeper into the image. The interpretation of one viewer is often different from the other, making her work thought provoking and emotional.
Jen was recently awarded the Painting prize in the 2018 City of Melville Art Award.
