Born, raised, and currently living in Providence, Jennifer Bedford spends countless hours enjoying and photographing the many open spaces and parks in Rhode Island and surrounding areas. Jennifer's interest in the arts was evident from an early age. Throughout her childhood, she gravitated primarily toward painting and drawing with different mediums. Her work covers a wide range of subject matter. Jennifer credits Theresa Russell, her elementary school art teacher, with fostering her sense of composition and thirst to find beauty in all things. Jennifer prefers photography as her primary source of artistic release, although she continues to draw, paint and sculpt.
