JEN EVENHUS - PSA-MP, NPS-DP, PSWC, KA
Jen Evenhus is a nationally recognized, award winning artist. Jennifer's bold use of color is what first attracts the eye. Her subject is often paint itself, fascinated with the painterly effects one can achieve with pastels, or the wonderful transparency of oils.
Whether with oils or pastels, Jennifer enjoys the process of painting as much as completing the work. Always sorry to see the journey end, Jen describes the process as a journey through unknown territory.
Even though she has a good idea of the outcome she wants, she is careful not to become locked into an idea, staying open to all those little accidents that happen along the way, careful not to cover them up.
These accidents she describes as unforeseen treasures that give a painting character, depth, and movement.
Jennifer's work is often very abstract, using earthscapes as a starting point, she paints out most of the detail, leaving just enough for the viewer to become lost in a new world.
Jen is a Master Pastelist in the Pastel Society of America; a Distinguished Pastelist in the Northwest Pastel Society, and signature member of Pastel Society of the West Coast.
Jennifer has exhibited work in New York City at the National Arts Club; Denver, Colorado at Carol Siple Gallery; Sacramento and Redding, California; New Orleans at the World Trade Center; Coos Bay and Bend, Oregon and Seattle, Issaquah, Everett, Wenatchee and Anacortes, Washington to name a few. She enters and is accepted in many juried shows each year and has numerous national awards to her credit.
