Jennifer is a Scottish visual artist who works from her home studio near Gairloch in northwest Scotland.
She specialises in capturing the character and essence of Scotland, using watercolours in a vibrant, innovative and evocative style. Her work is inspired by the northern Scottish coasts and their trappings; boats, sheds, flora and fauna feature in her work, as well as big bold seascapes. More recently she has been experimenting with linoprinting, continuing with the maritime theme. She produces a range of gifts and greetings cards from both her artwork and photography and these are stocked by a number of retailers throughout Scotland.
