the court­yard, and the floor light means Jen­nifer can keep an eye on her daugh­ter in her room below the master bed­room. The last things on Jen­nifer's wish list are to re­spray the kitchen units in Far­row and Ball’s Stu­dio Green to com­ple­ment the orig­i­nal wall­pa­per she sourced and echo the green plants out­side, and to make cush­ions for the sofa.

"COVID has made me turn in­wards, to re­flect and con­sider what needs to change; it's forc­ing me to slow down, which is a good thing,” she says. Dur­ing these times, the artist has also in­spired pos­i­tiv­ity – she put an ad on so­cial me­dia ask­ing peo­ple to send her a photo of iso­lated older peo­ple. She would paint these por­traits and send back their paint­ing as a sur­prise. This driven, dy­namic woman is about to em­bark on an­other ad­ven­ture – this time to train as an art ther­a­pist and has a place to study for an MA in Art Psy­chother­apy at Gold­smith’s Univer­sity. There’s a say­ing that the pur­pose in life is to en­joy ev­ery mo­ment. For Jen­nifer, it’s cer­tainly “to en­joy ev­ery mo­ment and art.” //
