About the Artist

Growing up on Lady’s Island in Beaufort, Jennifer DuRant spent most of her time outdoors. As a young girl, she started taking lessons from a successful local artist.

The initial oil paintings were inspired by her natural surroundings, such as scenes from the closest dock, or the sun setting behind a few palmetto trees.
