Using her observational skills and bold, atmospheric drawing to bring attention to her subjects’ identity, Jennifer Brereton works mainly in pencil as well as charcoal and conte crayon. A farming childhood gave Jennifer insight into animal behaviour; details that are very much appreciated by highly critical customers who handle stock.
A retired dairy farmers comment of, ‘I’ve seen that every day but I’ve never noticed it before’, when purchasing a print of cows eating under an electric fence, sums up what Brereton hopes to achieve in her drawings.
Jennifer Brereton, who trained in fine art, started selling her work in 1992 and, now, both sales of limited edition prints and original drawings extend worldwide. In 2000 Jennifer was invited to exhibit at both World Dairy Expo in Madison and the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. Many of her images are now sold out. Original drawings sell quickly and attract high prices.
