Jennifer Hinrichs ©I had my first art show ever with my friend Jennifer Hinrichs,
a fantastic artist in every painting and drawing medium.
I don't think I'd be an artist today if I hadn't met Jennifer.
Studying at OCAD was fabulous for training, but I needed
more than it had to offer. After finishing an English
degree, while working at an art magazine, I met Jennifer.
She is not only a fabulous artist, but was an incredible art
At the time, meeting people at all levels in Canadian art,
I was alienated by what looked like an impossible
profession that created stars for reasons I often couldn't
understand, and left the majority of artists struggling
to make a living.
Jennifer changed my mind, and helped me see how wonderful
an artist's life could be in so many ways. Because of her I joined
the Don Valley Art Club, started meeting other artists,
participated in regular drawing classes, and was in
wonderful group shows.
She is always an awe inspiring artist -- who makes me
feel so excited every time I see her work. And I want to
thank her. It has been a pretty joyous ride out here in the
land of art. People like you -- Jennifer --make it possible to
enjoy the life, learn, grow and continue to have fun.
Have a loving your art friends day.
What a lovely post. And I am thrilled to see this charcoal drawing of Jennifer's. It really evokes another time and the way she uses lights and darks is so dramatic. I wonder if she ever made a painting from this scene.
Barbara, you continue to be a great influence in my art life. Your use of light and colour brings such life and joy to your subjects. For 10 years I have been trying to emulate your effective use of turquoise, but I doubt I'll ever get there.
Thank you for you, for your art, encouragement and inspiration. xo
Thank you so much. I love the drawing too, and all of Jennifer's work. Thank you so much
for your lovely compliments. You know I learn so much from you all the time, and
am completely dazzled by your work.
So thank you my sweet friend.
