Embracing the essence of abstract expressionism, Jennifer Rapp Peterson’s work reflects her love of spontaneity and innovation. Working intuitively, Jennifer explores gesture, transparency and multi-layered elements in her paintings. She employs broad, forceful strokes and fine deliberate lines in equal measure. She dialogues with each painting until it's complete.
Jennifer is self-taught; her artistic sensibility is deeply informed by growing up in a creative home. She is also a successful cartoonist, illustrator, toy inventor and entrepreneur. Her greeting cards, toys and books have been sold worldwide.
She currently lives and works in the Chicago area with her husband and two children.
