Jennifer De La Torre ~ was born in Teaneck, New Jersey, though she spent a portion of her childhood in Colombia, where she raised chickens in her grandmother's backyard and often wandered off the beaten path during many family trips by the river.
It is this allure of adventure, the power of storytelling and her fascination with animals, both real and imagined, which she seeks to convey in her artwork.
Jennifer also has an (almost) irrational love of cats.
