Influenced by East and West art
Jennifer Wu was born in Beijing, PRC.
She used to live in Canada (Montreal & Toronto) and now lives in Seattle US.
Jennifer tells us about her art:
“Growing up in China and living in the West, my love of watercolor comes how I feel the media connects both of my worlds – East and West.
I’ve never been to art school. On the contrary, I’ve been a computer programmer most of my adult life.
Watercolor to me is more an expression than a technique. Watercolor is an expression of free spirit.
I first fell in love with watercolor when I read Trevor Chamberlain‘s “A Personal View”. Seeing his watercolors was a magical opening to me. I started to paint soon after that, around year 2000.”
She attended workshops with Eric Wiegardt, Alvaro Castagnet and William Hewson.
Her paintings show brush economy to achieve the wonderful loose abstraction of the scenes she paints.
