International artist Jennifer Lake is an amazingly versatile artist. Best known for her detailed folk art paintings, her work is cherished by collectors internationally and in the United States, Canada and Japan. Many of her print series have completely sold out. There are over 400 paintings in the collection and more than one million prints have been sold, making her the most collected artist in the Northwest. Her work has been featured in numerous newspaper articles, magazines and television programs here and abroad; the most exciting of which was her tour in Japan.
Jennifer began her professional painting career over 30 years ago. With a love of American history,nature,and the west, she created a series for New York, Oregon, Washington, and Canada. Her work is a feast of color and minute detail that captivates the eye.
Another series of her much collected work is her home portraits done in her signature style. Jennifer has been commissioned by people all over the world to paint portraits of their homes, companies, ranches and weddings. Each painting captures a time of history creating heirlooms for the owners for years to come.
Jennifer has recently started several new series titled:
"The Wild Side" - A collection of whimsical wildlife paintings. A delight for anyone.
"The Wild West" - A series of paintings that includes "The Oregon Love Story" and the "Northwest Native Americans" a series dedicated to her famous Great Uncle George Catlin.
"The Lake Series" - A collection of whimsical lake scenes.
Currently Jennifer is working on a new series titled "The Flowers of My Life". The new series will be unveiled this summer at the "30th Anniversary Celebration" of her career. Sponsored by the Sunriver Resort and The Great Frame Up in Bend, Oregon.
For over 20 years Jennifer Lake had an art gallery in Sisters, Salishan and Bend, Oregon that she closed in January. She is currently focusing on several projects for the retail industry, gift ware industry and developing new collections. Although Jennifer loves all aspects of her work, she is most proud of the money the sale of her work has raised for Northwest Charities...over one and half million dollars to date.
Jennifer obviously is dedicated to her profession and helping others in the process. I hope you enjoy her vast and diverse collection.
