Jennifer Williams is an Australian born contemporary oil painter residing in Rowayton, Connecticut. Her paintings are lively
expressions of landscapes, cities, figures and abstract themes. Building on a long-standing history that has led from
ancient art and impressionism to the art of today, her paintings bring a sense of joy and light to the senses. Using gesture,
line and form she communicates the majesty of our landscapes as she perceives them - full of movement and light.
Jennifer has a way of mixing reality with a sense of fantasy. Upon entering her studio, one is
invited to become immersed in her work. She captures the mystical beauty of the city streets
in the moonlight, the long cast of the shadows in lower Manhattan, the warm glow of the
Paris Cafes and the glitz of Times Square. Her technique of painting, texturing, glazing and
extracting on metal enables the viewer to feel the energy and excitement of her landscapes.
Her botanical paintings expertly capture the essence of free, uninhibited growth. In her
compositions, recognizable plants mingle with botanical creations. Her vantage point sites the
viewer directly within the midst of the plant-scape. Taking the perspective of an insect, one is
surrounded by large, riotous flowers and intricate, uncontained vines that seem to spill beyond
the edges of the canvas. She is a close observer of nature’s rhythms, patterns and revelations.
Jennifer has studied movement as a form of therapy for many years. She has discovered that – as with nature - the human
body offers up secrets to those with the understanding, insight and patience to observe. In her painting process and
movement therapy practice, Williams relies on sharp powers of observations to make assessments and address compli-
cated and changing structures. Connections between her understanding of ecosystems and body systems are evident in
the imagery, structure and fluidity of her figurative, landscape, botanical and architectural paintings.
Williams has a B.A. in business and has studied fine arts at Parsons School of Design in New York, Rowayton Arts Center
and Silvermine School of Art in Connecticut. Her award-winning work is exhibited and collected in the United States,
Europe, Asia, Australia and the Caribbean. Recently her cityscape paintings were featured in a national juried show at the
prestigious Salmagundi Club in New York.
Her paintings are currently on exhibit in Paris, New York, and Connecticut and on long-term exhibit at the Memorial Sloan
Kettering Hospital, NY. Jennifer is represented by Sorokin Gallery in Greenwich, CT and Galerie DDG in Paris, France. She
is a member of the Artists Collective of Westport and the Rowayton Artists Collective. Jennifer is the great niece of the
notable Australian artist Moya Dyring who is represented by the Australian National Gallery.
