Jennifer Tan paints and lives on the side of a mountain overlooking the  sea.  After a lifetime of dabbling she started taking classes painting with acrylics a few years ago, and is now working hard trying to find her feet there.  Inspired by the beach, by colour and light, and by the warmth found in everyday simple scenes, she is energized in painting by trying new things, trying to figure things out, and by drinking lots and lots of chai tea.  She’s also exhilarated by the wicked delight of sometimes staying up painting very, very late, happily lost in the fun of making marks.

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.
