Jennifer Cook-Chrysos

My work centers around the appreciation of wildlife and the natural world. With degrees in both Biology and Art, I am drawn to paint the small moments in ecology going on around us all the time. I paint in both oils and watercolor, and I sometimes use patterned paper to add texture and surprise to my paintings. Although I often paint on canvas, when I incorporate collage elements I prefer painting on wood panel in order to adhere the paper more easily. I have discovered that I really love the texture of oil paint on panel which is more chunky and slick than on canvas. I like to finish with a glossy overcoat to make the surface fresh and almost enamel-like.

10% of my profits each year are donated to the Columbia Land Trust,, to preserve and restore vital habitats in the Pacific Northwest.
