• About the artist

    Montreal-based artist Jennifer Goddard works in oils and multi-medium drawing. She focuses primarily on the languages of the figure, drawing on 18 years studying classical dance. Her approach is either one of response or escape: the activist responds to society’s injustices and overarching themes; the escapist revels in pure colour, line and composition.

    A lifelong artist and largely self-taught, she studied for three summers (1975-78-81) at The Banff Centre, Alberta, and three sessions at Studio Escalier in Paris and Argenton, France (2015-15-16). In the interim, she studied under various teachers while pursuing a career in advertising. In the 80’s and again starting in 2006, she has shown in many solo and group exhibitions and has work in private collections in Europe, Canada and the US.
