Jennifer Clark grew up in Toronto, Ontario and spent her academic years at Claude Watson School for the Arts where she majored in visual arts and music. She later studied at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Painting and Drawing and Art Education. She developed an appreciation for the natural world after spending a significant amount of time in the outdoors with her family on Georgian Bay in Ontario. She now lives in Crescent Beach where she has an operating art studio.  She works at the Surrey Art Gallery part-time, is a group facilitator with Thrive Art Studio supporting female artists, and is a member of Z-inc. Artist Collective in Surrey, British Columbia. She has exhibited at the Surrey Art Gallery, Concordia University, Kimoto Gallery, Ian Tan Gallery, amongst others.  Her paintings explore the human internal body, the psyche and the natural world.  Her goal with her fine art practice is to contribute in a meaningful way to Canadian contemporary painting and also through the sale of her work, support an environmental charity.
