Southern Oregon’s own internationally acclaimed artist

Jennifer Vranes

Southern Oregon’s own internationally acclaimed artist

Local artist Jennifer Vranes, who lives in Central Point, is best known for her large and vibrant paintings of aspen forests and European landscapes. Her trademarked technique using a palette knife to ‘sculpt’ in thick textures has become a favorite among art galleries and collectors worldwide. Her successful career as an artist continues to soar, including demand for her paintings nationally and internationally.

Vranes studied oil painting at Brigham Young University, graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in 1998. An avid traveler, Vranes finds inspiration from the beautiful places she has seen around the world. Through her landscapes, she transports the viewer to Tuscany where poppies grow wildly in breathtaking meadows; or to France where fragrant Lavender is farmed in lush rows; or to the Rocky Mountains where groves of Aspens quake near rolling streams and rivers. Vranes finds the most beautiful gems of nature, and captures them on canvas for all to experience and enjoy.

On these pages, enjoy a peak at her collection, including some amazing Rogue Valley landscapes. And I can’t imagine you missed her stunning “Clusters of Grapes” on the cover of this magazine!

“The greatest compliment I ever received was from one of my Art Collectors. I will never forget what he said about my work, ‘Your paintings make me happy. I can look at them over and over again, and feel uplifted.’ His compliment embodies my goal for creating Art. There is nothing more I want in this world than to bring joy to people through my work.”
