Born near Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Jennifer grew up encouraged in her artistic abilities. From an early age, Jennifer was exposed to sewing and fabric by her mother who passed on her knowledge as an accomplished seamstress and quilter. Young Jennifer was not that enthusiastic about sewing, but eventually came to appreciate having been given those same skills
Jennifer attended West Virginia Wesleyan College in 1987 set on a major of fine arts. In her junior year, she switched her major to fashion merchandising, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in this field. Her favorite class out of that curriculum was textiles.
After taking time off to raise a family, Jennifer discovered Adobe Photoshop and knew right away that this was another medium with which she had to become involved. Self taught in this program, Jennifer returned to her roots in fiber arts by designing fabric and repeating designs. She alternates between digital and traditional art.
Currently she resides in York, PA where she draws and designs.
