Jennifer Wigmore

Originally from Edmonton, Alberta, Jennifer moved to Toronto in 1995. She is equally passionate about portraiture and abstraction, and has achieved great success in each genre. Her paintings are in private collections and galleries across Canada. Each of her paintings, whether abstract or figurative, is a celebration of energy and movement. She believes that the simplest moments of truth often pass by us unnoticed. These unguarded instants flash by, unrecognized and uncelebrated, where reflections of inner thought can clearly be seen. A sense of play is also important in Jennifer’s work: a whimsical look toward an imagined reality.
Jennifer participated in the hit TV show, Star Portraits on BRAVO. Three painters are chosen to paint a famous Canadian celebrity and given only two weeks to paint until their paintings are revealed. The star then chooses their favourite portrait to keep. Jennifer is thrilled that her portrait of Gordon Pinsent now hangs in his home.
