Jennifer was born in 1950. She is a Scottish artist who lives and works in Sutherland but is originally from Coatbridge, near Glasgow. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1971 and later taught Art and Design at schools in Lanarkshire, Inverness and Sutherland. Since leaving teaching in 2001 Jennifer has been a full time, professional artist. Jennifer says ‘My paintings are very much a personal response to my environment in terms of colour, light and space. They are in the Scottish painterly tradition, reflecting my time at Art School with tutors such as William Drummond Bone, Sandy Goudie and David Donaldson. I enjoy exploring colour and the tactile qualities of oil paint, largely through still life.'
