Jennifer Sugarman is known for brilliantly colorful small paintings that invite the viewer into imaginative dreamscapes. Her work has been accepted into juried competitions nationally and internationally and is held in many private collections.
Born in New York City, Jennifer took her first art class at MOMA at age four, where she saw works of art that have influenced her throughout her artistic career. She went on to receive her MFA from The University of Mississippi and her BA from Northwestern University.
The scale of her watercolors, and therefore interaction with them, is small and personal. Surface tension, brushstroke, and layers of color combine to create depth of field and interest. Jennifer’s application of the watercolor medium is decidedly non-traditional, using a process she has created over years of working with the medium; her saturated colors create an aesthetic that is unexpected and often not recognized by the viewer as watercolor.
