Jennifer Morgan


"Gaze Seed"

Artist Statement:

My work is inspired by my family history in Conception Bay North and St. John's. I am caught up in the artifacts that my ancestors left on the landscape and in houses. My prints and paintings explore the stories that these artifacts tell and the people they describe.
