Plein Air Juror

Jennifer Diehl
2018 Umpqua Plein Air Juror



About Jennifer:

Jennifer wants to live in a world where travel is instantaneous, time at the easel and with her family are both limitless, and pots and pans dance their own way to the sink and back into the cupboards.

While these things seem to be something she may have to wait to experience, she has wasted no time in the real world. Having known her passion since she could say the word “artist,” her whole life has been spent pushing towards that goal. Her artist parents taught her how to think about art, but sent her to learn the practice of it from her mentor, Henry Stinson. Jennifer studied with him until she was 18, and then her career began with her first show…..a Mother/Daughter debut. Since then, Jennifer has won numerous awards, shows in galleries/exhibitions around the country, and teaches what she knows to students who, like her, are students of art.

Jennifer has taken workshops from many well-known artists and worked hard to learn what they had to give, never wanting to stall in her artistic development. Even with her last painting, she wants to be exploring new ways to convey her thoughts and feelings without words.
