Jennifer Dobbin

Mixed Media Artist

Modern art explorations and musings. Jennifer’s preferred medium is acrylics, but she works with plaster, oils, leafing, spray paint and other materials to create her art.

Art is a personal form of therapy and exploration for me and at times I am quite prolific, churning out up to ten pieces in an evening, or one huge, expressive piece in a week. I hope you enjoy my work and consider adding a piece to your home, workplace or gallery.

All original pieces are available for purchase.

Commissions are available in the size, # of canvases and colours of your choice.

Classes are available for in-home groups and seniors facilities.

Commissions Available

Acrylic on Canvas

Modern, bold graphics or subtle ocean inspired art in all sizes available. For extra large art areas, multiple panels can cover the space, add visual interest and are easy to hang. Large canvases are available by special order.

Mixed-Media on Canvas

Big or small, mixed media projects are available by commission. Choose your colour and style preferences or request a ‘remake’ of a sold piece (outcomes will, of course, vary in matching). Plaster, gold/silver leaf, marbling, veining, just about anything is possible!

Furniture Art

Furniture pieces are available by commission for your own pieces or I can source a piece for you.  Art-furniture makes a big, colourful impact in your home and each piece is one-of-a-kind in the world!

How do commissions work?

First you assess and photograph the space you wish to ‘fill’ with the commissioned art piece(s). And provide me information about the size, the lighting and surrounding decor.

You then choose the style and colours you like out of my existing pieces and I will do a small-scale sample for you to review and comment on (they can be shipped anywhere in the world).

Next I will help you plan the size, number of canvases and balance for the piece based on the location.

Once we agree on any changes in intention and colour for the pieces, I create the final, large-scale pieces. Of course, there is an intention to the piece: waves, light, patterns, etc, however the outcome is unpredictable in flow painting.

My existing clients have been very happy with the commissioned pieces they have requested and they enjoyed seeing the art process in action through a series of videos and photos throughout the creation of their commissions.

I adore my two pieces! I love their uniqueness and knowing that no one out there has the same paintings on their walls. That one of a kind personal touch only you can create.

Seeing behind the scenes was a lot of fun! I felt like I was part of the creation process and it really made the pieces that much more personal to me.” ~ Bailey

For Example

The panels below are a study for a 3′ x 10′ stairwell commission. They are 10″ x 10″ each.
