I’m Jennifer and I love painting geometric lanscape and abstract pieces.

Although I consider myself to be an emerging artist on the Toronto art scene, I was a Fine Arts minor at York University and graduated with honours in 1998. Since then, I have been an elementary school teacher with a focus in the arts. Working with students to develop their skills and take risks in the arts, I have been inspired to begin my own artistic journey as an adult. As a firm believer in the power of the arts to encourage creativity, resiliency, perseverance, and collaboration, it is my vision to continue to make art as an individual, and to facilitate that process in my classroom as a teacher.
