Jen Ferguson is a full-time artist and self-taught painter working in dumbo Brooklyn for the last decade. She works in both oil and watercolor uses traditional painting
techniques and materials.
Although known for large-scale paintings of the Brooklyn Bridge and other local architecture, she also delves into the world of small figurative work, creating strange characters that inhabit delicate and folkloric scenery. Inspired by individuals and surroundings in everyday life, she creates a vibrant pastiche of temperaments, both animal and human.
Recently her work was featured in the book “art of the Brooklyn Bridge: A visual History” (Richard Haw, 2008). In addition to her painting career, she also has a very small art program in Dumbo for very small artists, called Possum Paint Studio.
