Jennifer L Mohr is an acrylic and mixed media painter living and creating in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada. Her creative work mirrors her special connection with the natural world and explores ideas about her identity as being deeply linked to place, specifically the prairie landscape where she spent her childhood. She has a fond affinity for all plants ‘wild and weedy’ and enjoys hunting for wildflowers with her family on their 20 acres of native prairie.
Jennifer began exploring the visual arts in early childhood, later earning her B.F.A. in painting at the University of Saskatchewan in 2002. After a nearly 15-year absence from art-making, a challenging period of transition in 2016 inspired Jennifer to honor and embrace her identities of artist and naturalist.
Her current ongoing series of work entitled, “Belonging to the Land” focuses on Jennifer’s place-identity connection with the native prairie landscape as expressed in her paintings through mixed media, energetic mark-making, and a riot of abstracted colour.
