Jennifer shares insight into her work:

As I created these works I was keenly aware that every mark I made, whether it relied on my Eastern or my Western heritage, was made by one hand--my hand--and that the finished product would live and breathe as part of a world in which we all are tenants and that we all share.


Conflict, balance and harmony shape the vitality, form and energy -- no constraints here.

Sarah was born and raised east of Toronto, Canada, on a beach on Lake Ontario. Sarah became interested in art at a young age, spending every available minute drawing, and developing her techniques. After high school, she spent a year in an interdisciplinary liberal arts program in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at the University of King's College, studying Western literature and philosophy. During this time, she kept an avid practice of her journaling and sketching, weaving together a visual language which combined her reflections on philosophy, life and existence.
