Jennifer Prevost began painting as a young girl, experimenting with any medium she could get her hands on. After graduating high school, she was accepted into the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at Queens University, Kingston Canada. Within this program she studied under accomplished artists and instructors such as Carl Heywood, Otis Tamasauskas, Dan Oxley, and Jan Winton. She learned the art of printmaking on litho stones, building sculptures from reclaimed material, but most importantly, she was introduced to her lifelong love of oil painting.
Throughout the years, Jennifer has been enthralled with the raw beauty of the Canadian landscape and this continues to be the subject of her work. The Canadian landscape contains abstract patterns, colour combinations, and unique textures that provide endless inspiration for her work. She can often be found hiking through the Gatineau hills or by the banks of the Ottawa river, with her camera and ukulele in hand in anticipation of the perfect sunset or patterns in the snow.
“I hope my work represents the beauty of Canada’s wilderness with pride and emotion.”- Jennifer Prevost,
Jennifer’s work has been exhibited in Kingston and Ottawa within solo and group exhibitions throughout the years.
