According to me...

I really enjoy Jennifer's work. It has a beach feel to it, which isn't surprising considering the inspiration she has all around her on the island. I like the way she incorporates the gold into her work to give it personality. Overall, i think Jennifer is an extremely talented artist and i really the pieces i have seen.
