Jennifer is a proud Chipewyan Dene’ woman who is originally from Fort Smith, Northwest Territories. She lived in small community until 2004 and then moved to Grande Prairie. Jennifer currently holds a Visual Arts and Design Diploma from Grande Prairie Regional College and was the Valedictorian for the Class of 2016. She plans to obtain her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Alberta in the fall of 2017. She at this time works at Grande Prairie College as the Indigenous AADP Peer Mentorship Program Assistant and enjoys working with the students and the faculty who have helped her in her successes.
As an emerging Visual Artist, Jennifer uses the experiences of her personal life of living with FASD and her Indigenous background to create many of her art pieces. Much of her art practice involves combining her love of painting with other mediums and surfaces.
