Jennifer Heine

Mixed-media artist
A mixed-media artist working in Richmond, BC, Jennifer is inspired by the hunt for unexpected beauty in the everyday and the challenge of expanding the visual vocabulary and means with which to express it. Raised in a family of professional artists in Victoria, her creative foundations were enhanced by studies in art history, fine art and design at the University of Victoria, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the British Columbia Institute of Technology. In the past 25 years she has continued working in the Arts, garnering recognition and international collectors. Jennifer has been elected to the Society of Canadian Artists and a Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, for which she also acts as Vice-President. Her paintings reveal a devotion to the character of light and its ability to transmute the quotidian into something remarkable. She thrives on continual exploration of the physical and intellectual creative process, and relishes opportunities to share her experience through painting, teaching, workshops, photography and advocacy for the Arts.
