Jennifer combines drawing and meditation to create pattern, line and texture in artist books, drawings and prints. Intricate and personal, her work records memories, thoughts and emotions using monoprint, collagraph and paper cut. She enjoys the sculptural form of the artist book and the opportunity it provides to experiment with new structures.
