Exploring New Styles

In 2013 I was preparing for an art show, and I stumbled across a new style of art for myself. I have always enjoyed clean crisp lines in art, and sometimes the most simple line drawings are my favourite. What I discovered, was the texture of lines that each brush stroke made in a painting, and decided to try emphasizing that by adding contrasting colour lines on top of the bottom layers of paint. This was the first result:

Exploring Lines with an unsteady hand!

The second result:

First series, becoming more defined.

And now it has inspired a new series “Jasper: Two Days In The Rockies”

This was one of the final paintings from the second Jasper Series 2016:

Yogini since I was 17. Certified yoga instructor since I was 24. Totaling over 20 years of experience. Thousands of hours of practice, teaching, learning, sharing, loving, growing. I believe yoga needs to be made accessible to all people, even if that means simply practicing breath work. My business is named "The Gentle Way of Hatha" because from my personal experience it is the gentle practice that has been the most liberating, and what I wish to share with others. The essence of yoga: inner peace. Finding your calm in the chaos of life. Artist my whole life. Failed OCAD (well I didn't really give it a chance, I dropped out after one semester). Continue to create regardless. Check out JenniferAnneBurke.com to view my work. I love to travel, and hope to make it to Iceland in 2020 for an art adventure.
