If you like art that provides a bright and vivid glimpse of life & nature, then you’ll love the art of Jennifer Lommers. Classically trained at the University of Washington School of Fine Art, Jennifer brings her unique style to everyday items and gives the viewer a glimpse into how beautiful the world really is… even if we don’t always see it.
I give viewers a vivid glimpse of a moment, either perceived or real, much as their own memory, imagination, and emotions may capture it.
The Early Days of Jennifer Lommers
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Jennifer Lommers has always enjoyed the beauty & tranquility that this lush environment provides, using it as inspiration for many of her artworks. Now residing in the beautiful Willamette Valley, she also draws inspiration from the open spaces and patterns created by the rural farms and fields that surround her home town. The subjects she chooses to paint are often inspired by the vistas that she experiences in her own life.
My painting is truly an expression of the person I am today.
During her childhood, Jennifer Lommers loved animals and nature in general, using colored pencils to capture these images with her childhood imagination. She had originally planned on taking this love of nature in a more traditional direction by studying biology, but her love of art pushed her – instead – into pursuing an education in the fine art of painting.
She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Washington School of Fine Art in 1992, followed by a teaching certification from Western Washington University in 1995.
However, it took several years before Jennifer Lommers could put her love of nature and her talents as an artist to full time use. After graduating, she accepted several job opportunities outside of the art word, eventually landing inside the tech industry.
Jennifer Lommers, The Artist at Work
Luckily, for those who appreciate her wonderful artworks, Lommers was finally drawn back to her love of art in 2006. Inspired by the animals and nature that had always thrilled her, she happily embraced a new and exciting career as a full-time artist.
My journey as an artist has come full circle, and I am grateful to be at this point in my artistic travels.
Today, as a full-time artist, you can still feel that love of nature represented in her artworks. As her career has progressed, her paintings have become brighter and more passionate, creating lively and wonderful expressions of how beautiful the world is.
Birds, trees, flowers… especially poppies… are a frequent subject of my paintings with their natural ability to provide the bridge between what we see and what we feel when experiencing the outdoors.
Jennifer Lommers Paintings
Preferring to paint from memory, Jennifer applies acrylic paint in varying thickness in order to create a unique and marvellous combination of texture and color. This technique, in combination with the natural forms of the composition, is what helps bring a Jennifer Lommers artwork to life.
Both inside her studio and when she is outside painting “en plein air”, Jennifer Lommers tends to paint her subjects quickly with a distinct gestural style that give her artworks whimsical, fun energy that represents her experiences with nature.
I like the viewer to be able to see and identify the various elements of my painting without concern for photographic reality.
Her award-winning art is respected, loved, and collected by fine art enthusiasts around the world, as well as by those who simply want to add a touch of her whimsical, natural style to their own homes.
Aside from her famous portrayals of birds, nature, and flowers, you can also see some other common themes through her work. Bicycles, coffee cups, and chairs also make a frequent appearance.
I enjoy these everyday elements and both their ability to represent solitude and friendship with such sweet simplicity.
