Jennifer Dreyfus works to combine printmaking with abstract painting.  Originally drawn to this process from a background in batik, crafts and papermaking, layering and texture are key components of her work.  Jennifer rarely uses a brush when painting but instead relies on alternative tools including squeegees, wisk brooms, brayers, palette knives and cardboard.  Jennifer enjoys exploring the edge where random occurrences create beauty and where dramatic markmaking in the underpainting forms a foundation for resolution and balance.
