What Jennifer says about her work:
"I realized that one of the first places we learn to define ourselves and our worlds is in childhood stories, both the ones from books and the ones we are told by our families, our cultures, and our society.
It's surprising how often people don't know what story they're living by (myself included).
Today my work explores my fascination with how we relate to the stories in our lives and how we are impacted by those stories.
In my paintings, I create characters in symbolic environments suggestive of children's stories, using them to question our relationship with those narrative worlds."
