I make art about transformation, imagination and healing. The intention of my work is to create peace in a confusing and precarious world; to project a calm, contemplative atmosphere that energizes and restores. I enjoy exploring the deeper meaing–the source. I hope to engage your eyes, inspire your passion and take you on a visual expedition into new territory. – Jennifer Libby Fay
