Barbara Jaenicke

Name:  Barbara Jaenicke, PSA
Bio:   Barbara Courtney Jaenicke was born in 1964 in New Jersey. She graduated with a B.A. in Art/Advertising Design, from the College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College), in 1986 and spent the next decade as an art director in advertising before working in corporate marketing communications.   In 2002, she was able finally to concentrate on her fine art career, as practising artist and instructor. She has studied with Susan Ogilvie, Albert Handell, Anita Louise West, Greg Biolchini, Margaret Dyer, Greg Barnes, Duane Wakeham and Marc Hanson.  She has won numerous awards for her work, including Honorable Mention in the 12th Annual Pastel 100 Competition, April 2011.
Currently residing in Roswell, Georgia, Barbara teaches weekly pastel classes and various workshops throughout the metro Atlanta area.  Her work is available through the Raiford Gallery in Roswell. She is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and a Member of Excellence in the Southeastern Pastel Society.
There was a major feature on Barbara’s work, written by Deborah Secor, in the December 2011 issue of the Pastel Journal.
Medium : Pastel, oil

Style: Representational, but with a colorist’s interpretative approach. Barbara says: “when the light, medium and dark values are where they need to be...color becomes my plaything.”

Warm Sunlight on a Cold Winter's Day (14 x 18 ins) is extraordinary in that it reverses the usual warm foreground/cool background approach to landscape - a reversal that works very well in a wintry scene. The painting Copper Pot, Pitcher and Flowers (12 x 16 ins) is a great example of the use of primary colours red, yellow and blue, plus green, to give an integrated, harmonious approach to a colorist still life.
Blog: Barbara’s blog is an illustrated diary of her work and workshops.
