Jennifer Diehl

To return to this artist's example page, click here

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Jennifer’s ability to focus and work on her drawings at an early age was noticed by all. Her intensity and desire to study art only grew over the years. Jennifer's parents, being artists themselves, shared their knowledge and philosophy with her at a young age. In her early teens, they sent her to study Russian Impressionism with Henry Stinson, her mentor.


Jennifer currently works as a full time painter in Oregon where she teaches, travels monthly for workshops, shows and plein air painting. In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys anything to do with outdoors. She spends a lot of time reading the classics, playing piano, and has a passion for travel.
