Meet Jennifer, a self-admitted non-gardener who sees the beauty in all things gardening related.
"I love to paint things from the garden; I want to preserve their beauty for posterity. A local farm provides most of my veggie and flower subject matter, mainly because I kill everything I try to grow; only the hardiest plants will survive in my world. Chickens, cows and bunnies are also favorite subjects."
"Pickled" is the first in a series of paintings featuring the beautiful canning of Betty and Al Ulrich of NY state. Each of their jars is a work of art in itself.
"I have been drawing and painting since childhood." says Jennifer, "and have a degree from Florida State University in creative art. Light, drama and color are my priorities in a painting. My home and studio is in Charleston SC overlooking the marshes of the Ashley River."
