Jenny Wilson's paintings are inspired by the natural world and the interplay of light and dark in the sky and horizon lines. Her work evokes a sense of wonder and contemplation, inviting the viewer to lose themselves in the vastness of the landscapes she portrays. Through her use of color and value, Wilson captures the essence of the world around us.
What sets Wilson's work apart is her ability to capture the intangible qualities of nature, such as atmosphere, air, water, and earth. Her paintings are not merely representations of physical landscapes but rather expressions of the spiritual and emotional resonance that nature has on us all. Whether she is painting a memory of a place or creating an entirely new landscape, Wilson's work always carries with it a sense of reverence for the natural world.
Born and raised in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, Wilson has always been inspired by the wild habitats surrounding her. Growing up, she would take day trips to the mountains with her family, and she vividly remembers the horizon filled with clouds and the mountain lines that connected to the sky. This image has stayed with her throughout her life, and it continues to be a major source of inspiration for her work.
Wilson earned a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver, Colorado. Her time at the college allowed her to develop her skills and refine her artistic style, providing a solid foundation for her future career as an artist.
Another of Wilson's recent accomplishments has been her involvement in the Center for Arts Evergreen's Women's Art Circle, a group dedicated to supporting and promoting women artists in her local community. She is also currently serving on the committee for the 51st Annual Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibition in Colorado, a prestigious event that showcases the work of some of the most talented artists in the region.
Wilson's work has been exhibited in galleries nationwide, including the Canyon Road Contemporary Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. As well as the Center for the Arts Evergreen and the Lakewood Cultural Center. Her most current show was at D’art Gallery this past January called Invitation to Linger. These exhibitions are a testament to the quality of her work and the respect she has garnered in the art community.
