Jennifer Cavan is an Angel Fire artist who depicts the New Mexico landscape. A detour of more than a decade of corporate work delayed her pursuit of art. But, in 1996, she quit her corporate job, moved from Chicago to New Mexico and hasn't looked back since. The simple, timeless charm of New Mexico is the inspiration for her work. Using vibrant, saturated colors and bold composition, her renderings--in either oil pastel or oil--capture the essence and feel of northern New Mexico.
