"There’s a deep spirituality of nature embedded in the landscape of her work. She's producing a spiritual archeology where you can actually see the layers of nature unfolding. These layers of nature – trees, plants and the animals - all live and eventually die and their life force is absorbed by the earth. In Jennifer’s art, there’s a rediscovery and unearthing of that spiritual energy. She’s delving into a 'primitive prehistory' – a place where imaginations are formed and dream archetypes emanate." Ian Pyper, Brighton, England
Born in Austin, Texas, JC spent her formative years in El Paso where the border lifestyle, the Chihuahuan desert, and the vibrant Mexican and Native cultures influenced her psyche and her art. She attributes the aboriginal flavor of her work to countless hours spent walking the desert and the Rio Grande - where the colors and patterns within the sand, stone and water formed a vibrant vision that remains today. These desert visions, as well as the resonant memories she holds from incredible El Paso murals and the city parks overflowing with extended families, colorful piñatas, and mariachis,have influenced much of her work.

ABOUT THE DAVID COPHER GALLERY
The gallery/studio is home to the work of multimedia artist David Copher, whose love of art and rodeo came together in perfect harmony in 2001, when his famous "Rodeo Clown" series of oil paintings and a number of his western-themed sculptures were honored with a special show in the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame. His beautiful work, including fine, hand-crafted jewelry is on permanent display.
