Awards Judge: Jennifer Evenhus
Jennifer is a nationally recognized award-winning artist, naturally drawn to patterns, shapes, and movement found in everyday objects and landscapes. She translates those into eye-stopping contemporary impressionist and abstract works of art, capturing their essence with simplification, exaggeration and the bold use of color. Jennifer has the honor of having achieved Pastel Society of America Master Pastelist, International Association of Pastel Societies MasterCircle Member, Northwest Pastel Society Distinguished Pastelist, and Pastel Society of the West Coast Signature Member. Her most recent accolade is the IAPS Master Circle Gold Medal, which she will receive at the IAPS convention in Albuquerque in June 2017. Jennifer is a featured artist in the July/August issue of Pastel Journal, where her painting Golden Reign graces the cover. Her work is also published in American Artist and PSA Pastelagram, and online blogs and sites. Learn more about Jennifer at http://jenevenhus.com/
