About Jennifer Tan

Almost every canvas I paint now teaches me so much, and my head is crammed with thoughts about what I want to try next. Even the stinkers I paint teach me a lot, although I usually hide the evidence and paint over them fairly quickly. I love whatever time I can find painting, get antsy if it’s been more than a few days, and shake my head at how fast my painting time goes past. Unbelievably fast. Sort of freakishly fast. Sometimes I’ll have a late-in-the-day chai to help perk me up and instead of heading to bed I’ll head to the easel, where staying up late painting and making marks feels like a wickedly wonderful decadence.

I admire artists who are together enough to have formal philosophies and definite paths of exploration. For now I’m bounding around trying a bit of a lot of things, finding my own style, learning buckets and having the time of my life. Trying not to feel intimidated by how much there is to learn, and try, and figure out and think about. Getting paint on my fingers. Living the life! I hope this website can reflect that a bit. Thanks for taking a look!

Above all watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
