Jennifer Harnett: Visual Artist

A bit of info about me & my art....

As a self-taught visual artist,

many of my paintings start

with an idea and a general direction,

but rarely finish at that original goal,

they often reveal themselves along the way,

evolving and changing as they progress,

very often surprising me with their finished form.

I like to explore and try new things,

often add collage items and words

to complement, enhance and/or

change the flavour of my work.

'Screaming Poppies' - Mixed Media

I also truly believe the following Paul Gardner quote: "A painting is never finished, it simply stops in interesting places."

To that end, many of my paintings have a sense of being unfinished.

I believe it’s important to leave a little something for the viewer’s imagination to finish.
