Born on Halloween into a large Irish family, Jennifer Garant began painting during childhood as a way to convey her individuality. She now creates whimsical, witty, stylized characters that are reflective of her unique style. Other than brief stints at art schools in the U.S. and Canada, Garant is primarily self-taught. Her frequent visits to New Orleans inspired her signature chefs that have been distributed worldwide on a variety of home décor products. Garant’s work is represented in fine galleries across Canada, the U.S., Australia and Hong Kong.
