Biography


"The only life worth living is that which is creative." Those are words that Jennifer Burgan began living by, even before she started her professional career as an artist in 1996. The daughter of a professional photographer and outdoor enthusiast, Jennifer has lived a life that sees the world through a creative lens.
 
Beginning in 1996, as an interior design assistant, she created original works of art for people's homes. At the same time, she began studying under her father as a photographer. Preferring to capture natural light and unspoiled moments, Jennifer has always chosen the road less traveled when it comes to documenting the images that she sees around her. This love of getting outside led to a love affair with hiking, camping and fly fishing, in tandem with her life as an artist.
 
In addition to being a photographer, she has enjoyed a fulfilling life as a textile designer, graphic designer, newspaper editor, web designer, illustrator and painter. Jennifer has a strong desire to pass on her knowledge of a life in the arts through both her university professor and high school educator positions, by empowering her students to seek out opportunities for growth rather than being anchored to past accomplishments.
 
As a teacher, she constantly reinforces that art is to be found in anything that you do in life. How you choose to go about your day to day is a direct reflection on your ability to express the creativity that is within you.
 
Jennifer is the California Art Club Co-Chair of the San Gabriel/Pomona Valley Chapter with her husband, Christopher Burgan. In addition, she is a proud member of American Women Artists, Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, and the California Plein Air Painters.
