Born in New York City into an artistic family—she’s the daughter of the Broadway actress and dancer Bambi Linn— Jennifer was surrounded from an early age by diverse creative talents and inspired by the stimulation of museum- and theatergoing. Today, she resides in Litchfield, CT where she keeps her studio and workshop, just a short distance from the city that provided her early artistic attraction and inspiration.
Jennifer has honed her artistic style across years of experimentation with color, pigment, materials and structure. She is a self-taught abstract artist and colorist, most focused on color and texture, and the stories they reveal: a journey of expression that’s taken her quite far from the highly technical pen-and-ink renderings she worked on as a young artist in her teens.
Among Jennifer’s signature works are her vibrant “drips” or color streams, which in a gravity-driven process integrate line after line, layer after layer of different hues into evocative striped canvases that are rich, vibrant and undeniably textural. This same commanding play of color and texture evolves dramatically in her abstract landscapes and mosaic creations as well. Her work is always drawing the viewer into a surprising world of light, color, and texture.
