Majestic Forest | Prima Essence

I was honoured when Sandra Topper of “Prima Essence” approached me about collaborating her oils with a blend inspired by my Canadian Landscapes. She had been brewing over this for about a year; of how to create an aromatic blend that would match our passions (and our love of trees). She describes it:

“After spending a great deal of time analyzing Jennifer’s work I have come up with an aromatic potion that matches the depth of colour in her cool sharp skies and striking silhouettes of trees.”

As a result we are introducing this limited edition oil “Majestic Forest.”

The journey begins with a classic conifer aroma punctuated by cool sharp notes of sweet birch, rosemary, sage and spearmint. A floral note of lavender appears at mid-range, while vetiver, violet leaf and vanilla provide the earth tone that is emitted from the forest floor.

Available in either a diffuser blend ($18) or perfume oil ($16). This aromatic potion was designed to transport your mind into a majestic forest, in order to find peace and restore your soul.

We do hope you enjoy this journey of the senses, visually and aromatically. You can purchase these from either myself or Sandra. I will have a booth at the St.Mark’s Christmas Market Friday, November 25th and Saturday, November 26th.

Christmas Market | Port Hope

At last, the Christmas Market has returned to St.Mark’s in Port Hope (51 King Street, off of Peter Street). This is the same location I hold my annual art shows at each year, but I am happy to be a part of this market community again. I do hope you can join us:

Friday, November 25th, 7:00pm – 9:30pm


Saturday, November 26th, 9:00am – 2:30pm

If you have never attended the St.Mark’s Christmas Market, you will discover a variety of vendors and easily find unique gifts for those you love this holiday season. They have quilts, ornaments, woodworking, pottery, knitting (think socks, hats, mitts, scarves, blankets, baby clothes, etc.), jewellery, and a realm of creative artists and artisans.

This year I will set up my collection of “Call Me Home” oil paintings, along with prints, cards and the 2023 Calendars (come early if you want a calendar, they are almost sold out). I will also have original oil sketches (matted to frame), and a few other items for sale. Come say hello, especially if you have not had a chance to see my new collection in person (photos never do art justice)!

See you there!
