Although an avid art enthusiast growing up, Cavan earned her degree in history from Brown University. After spending the early part of her adult life in the corporate world in Chicago, Cavan decided to pursue her love of art when New Mexico's clarity of light, rich feeling of tradition and strong sense of place pulled her from "home". She and her husband quit their corporate jobs and moved to the mountains of northern New Mexico. Shortly thereafter, she began working with oil pastels.
Her work has been featured in numerous publications -- American Art Collector, Southwest Art, New Mexico Magazine, Mountain Gazette and Enchantment. She has been a signature member of the Oil Pastel Society of America.
Represented by Leslie Flynt and Luca Decor in Santa Fe, and Trailside Galleries in Jackson, Wyoming, Jennifer also exhibits her work at juried art shows, garnering numerous awards and a steady following.
