About the Artist

Jenny Linn Loveland

Painter - Teacher, Writer

After completing a military career, I wanted to refresh my love of drawing by attending community art classes. Eventually, I graduated with a B.A. Fine Art with an emphasis on painting. My subject matter was primarily conceptual and abstract integrating elements of the human figure and working with water-based and in mixed media.  Shortly after graduation in 2002, I began teaching, accepting commissions and attending figurative/portrait open studios. I met other artists with similar interests and became a member of The Portrait Society of America. After attending one of their conferences in Washington DC, I became more fascinated with representational painting and painting with oils. I've completed intensive painting workshops with Studio Incamminati where I developed an appreciation for painting to paint - still life and plein air as well as figurative/portait.  My favorite medium is oil painting - alla prima.
