Growing up in Saskatchewan, Jennifer Woodburn always had a love of the outdoors. After finishing school she moved to the West Coast of British Columbia to pursue her love of skiing and the mountains. After meeting her husband, Mark in Whistler, they began a series of adventures that brought them to various mountain resort communities in North America. It was in Summit County, Colorado, that Jennifer first decided to pick up a paint brush.
Since that time, Jennifer has continued to evolve her style. Working in acrylic paints, she focuses on the graphic nature of the outside world. Line, shape and colour are all major components in her work. Creating simpler forms from what she see, joyous riots of colour reach across her canvases. "I love the tactile experience of painting. It is so immediate and rewarding. It is a very intuitive process for me. There is something completely satisfying about spreading candy coloured, rich, buttery paint across a fresh canvas."
