Jennifer Prevatt

Jennifer Prevatt is a New York based visual artist and children's book illustrator. She graduated in 2010 with a BA in Scientific Illustration, then spent the subsequent 8 years abroad, obtaining her MFA from Newcastle University in 2014. She has exhibited her work internationally including Spain, Bulgaria, Germany, China, and the UK.
Jennifer's work is introspective and investigates intimate layers of thought and memory within the scope of dreams. She experiments with illustration, installation, paper sculpture, and animation to create a visual narrative of archetypal thought patterns within the framework of a fairy tale. Paper is the commonality within her practice, often used because of its delicate and vulnerable quality. Recent works explore themes of mortality, fertility, and social expectations of femininity within the frame of sex and gender.
