The Artist — Jennifer Howard

Jennifer Howard

I am a painter and graphic designer who has lived and worked in Washington, DC for over 32 years. My paintings are about the moment, the immediacy of paint applied honestly, thickly and emotionally on canvas. I strive to convey a textural quality to the surface with layers of color and an emphasis on capturing light.

I have always loved to spend time outside and plein air painting has been a perfect match of painting in the moment and fulfilling my need to connect with nature and all its power. It gives me the space to dream and be inspired by life. Many of my current sources of inspiration come from the greater Washington, DC area but my love of nature started in my childhood in the Hudson Valley and many trips to the Adirondack Mountains of NY.
