I am very excited to introduce the work of artist Jennifer Ferris to the Quatrefoil Design store!

A small painting from Jennifer's bird series - sold very soon after I put it in the store.

I have known Jennifer since we lived in the same apartment complex in Boston 17 years ago (our husbands were attending graduate school together), and was always impressed and inspired by her love of art and her devotion to developing her artistic talent. Despite the fact that the apartments were tiny, Jennifer always had an easel set up and a canvas in the works.

After taking time to focus on her young sons, Jennifer started painting in earnest a few years ago, and is represented in several local galleries. She has started to find her own unique style, and I love what is she is creating these days!

I am featuring small scale works from Jennifer.  I particularly like small scale paintings, as they go so well in groupings, on gallery walls, on tabletops, in book cases, and in those small but important spaces.  If you are interested in larger scale works feel free to email me at quatrefoildesign@gmail.com.

"Diamonds in the Sky" measures 3.5" x 3.5" x 1.5" deep, wood board, mixed media (acrylic, collage & ink).

  1. LOVE her work, Holly! So glad you are carrying this! Don't you just love knowing someone before they become famous, so to speak? The girl that did my children's portraits was just a neighbor…now you can't get on her waiting list! I will treasure those portraits forever!

  2. Those prices are incredible! I bet you and she sell out in no time flat.

  3. I really like the idea of small original art at such great price. Beautiful composition , colors and textures.

  4. Beautiful work! I love her use of collage.

  5. Holly wonderful works of art. She is very talented!
