Jennifer grew up in a small town in New Hampshire and studied studio arts at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. During her schooling, Jennifer experimented with various media, from photography and film to steel welding and mixed media sculpture.
There was a freedom working with metals that Jennifer could not find in other media. The malleability, textures, and unlimited possibilities of raw metal continue to excite her creative impulses. Along with the flexibility and natural beauty of metals, the idea of metal as industrial material was an intriguing concept that inspired much of her early pieces and continue to today.
