My approach to painting comes from deep within. When painting I tap into memory, lived experiences and a vivid imagination to create beautiful impressionistic images. My work is inspired by  my love of horses and the beautiful, messy nature of life. The connection between my paint brush, textured acrylic’s and canvas is grounding and a sensory expression of experiences.  


I live in Port Hope by the river with my love bug lab named Zoey. I moved here in 2012 and quickly fell in love with it! Since calling Port Hope home, I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful individuals, each one welcoming me into the community and leaving a footprint of humanness, connection and authenticity. I see art and life as perfectly imperfect and seek to experience connection with others through the simplicity of being present and visually enraptured in an eternal moment in time. I cannot imagine life without art and community in Port Hope. 

“Lines In The Sand”


Presently, Lines in the Sand is being showcased at Ganaraska Art and Framing in Port Hope, and some select pieces are in my home studio.  When not painting for fun or an art show I paint commissioned pieces by request.

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.
