Jennifer Kahn Barlow first found her love for painting at 7 years old. Through her youth, at Skidmore College, and throughout her career in the corporate world, Jennifer continued to pursue her passion for painting. Since 2008, with the birth her daughter, Jennifer has focused her aspirations on her artistic skills and career.
Under the tutelage of Michael Francis, Kurt Swartz, and most notably, Glen Kessler, Jennifer has grown tremendously as an artist. She has also had the privilege studying with Alyssa Monks and Duane Keiser, in their workshops.
Jennifer’s most recent body of work explores tantalizing sweets. Her paintings of confectionary distill precious moments from the normal chaos of daily life. Jennifer is now the mother of two young children and time is the most elusive of all commodities. The indulgences rendered in oil on canvas, serve as a reminder to decelerate and savor life’s sweetness.
Jennifer’s artistic presence is continually widening. She has been featured in Professional Artistmagazine and included in the select Strathmore 2015 Exhibition, “Women Chefs: Artists in the Kitchen.” Jennifer has won numerous awards, her paintings have been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, and reside in numerous private collections.
Currently, Jennifer works out of her home studio in Potomac, MD and teaches “Snapshot to Fine Art” at the Compass Atelier in Rockville, MD.
