Hear from my amazing clients over the years …
"Jen's accepting manner and calming essence allowed me to build a trust with her, where I felt safe to let down walls and open up . Her past experiences allow her to develop a close relationship with her clients and I was lucky enough to experience that. “
“I Am Exactly Where I Need To Be”
I think for the first time I really, truly believed that I am exactly where I need to be. Then, I began to reflect on how far I've come and the vast knowledge I've gained through working with you over the past ten months. I am truly enlightened by the way that you explain things so clearly. I just wanted to say that I'm filled with immense gratitude for everything that I've learned thus far and for you being such an instrumental part of my journey.

“It moved me in ways I could have never imagined.”
"I was actually just about to email you to thank you for tonight! It moved me in ways I could have never imagined. And even though I was worried that not being physically present would alter the experience for me, that wasn't the case at all. The energy in the room was so palpable that I didn't need to be there to feel it.
After the session, I sat for a few moments and suddenly burst into tears. But the tears weren't out of sadness or anxiousness; rather, I felt like I was being cleansed from all of the judgments and blame that I constantly put on myself. I wish I had the words to describe this experience to you.
“Being Myself Is Enough”
Jen taught me that being perfect is only in our minds and isn't a part of reality. She helped me to open the door toward vulnerability and assured me it would only make me stronger. I know now that she was right. Jen introduced me to the idea that being myself is enough, and that I am loved no matter how I think or feel. Having been a client of Jen I can honestly say that she was the first one to plant a seed on the path towards my overall growth as a complete individual. It is people like Jen that can inspire and jumpstart anyone to continuing to build a life worth living like I have everyday."

“The four together are absolutely beautiful!"
I have four pieces of Jennifer’s incredible art, paired together to make one statement on my wall. Her powerful use of colors has grabbed me! I love the gorgeous combinations brought together on canvas. The four together are absolutely beautiful!
"I love the energy it brings to that corner of my home!"
I love the raw expression and all the little details. The colour composition is so beautiful; it draws you in. And the print quality is great! It is a smaller art print, but it really changes the space it is in. I love the energy it brings to that corner of my home. I look forward to adding more lovely pieces to my art collection in the future.
-Lise Lonsmann, Artist
"I love my treasured piece and Jenn’s work overall!"
Jen’s color palette very much appeals to me, as do the brushstrokes thereof! I feel calm and serene, when I look at the painting because what I see is an ocean and sunset in the abstract.
I especially like the light to dark/thick brushstrokes of color against the pale watercolors. Even in the darkest purple there’s a beauty and a richness that sits so well next to the mid-tones and the lightest of light. A splash of yellow among the teal and turquoise backdrop just brings it all home. Needless to say, I love my treasured piece and Jenn’s work overall.
"I feel inspired and relaxed when I look at my paintings!"
Jen - I love your artwork!! I am drawn to and inspired by the color combinations and I love how they look almost floral or butterfly/bird-like, but in an abstract way. I am enjoying my artwork-thank you! Keep on painting and creating! :) I love the colors used-they are so vivid, yet also calming too. I am inspired by the flow of the paintings as well. They are just so unique! I feel inspired and relaxed when I look at my paintings.
"You're truly a gifted artist & a beautiful soul!"
I love my painting, it looks a beautiful sunset! When I look at my painting I feel so relaxed! So great to have met you, you're truly a gifted artist & a beautiful soul!
"I never thought I could have that"
I am still feeling something I never really have, it's almost overwhelming, but truthfully indescribable. I never thought I could have that. So something tells me to thank you for guiding me to it and to thank you for being so kind, patient, and an amazing teacher. I feel exponentially grateful in this moment (and many moments) that our paths have crossed in life.

“Restorative yoga....so relaxing.”
Thanks again. I thought the session was great. It well exceeded all of my expectations because I have had mixed experiences with other types of yoga. I really did not understand that restorative yoga could be so relaxing. I have noticed over the past week a continuation of the process and have allowed myself to experience quiet again. I often do several things at once and play audio books or lectures constantly but lately I have been just doing and being more.
