Artist Profile

Jeanne Mackenzie
Hollyhock Haven
Hollyhock Haven

Oil Painting
Originals
There is an energy, a freshness, associated with painting from life. Painting on location (en plein air) and capturing the scene all at once (alla prima) has excited artists and collectors since the turn of the century. Jeanne Mackenzie joins a select group of artists who share their love of nature by capturing the moment from life.

Jeanne Mackenzie’s style of painting is a blend of impressionism and realism. Her paintings are done in oil with rich warm tones and a painterly application. These reflect the bold light and striking contrasts of her favorite still lifes and western landscapes.

Jeanne’s subject matter comes from favorite found objects, her travels, backpacking trips with llamas or her local rural surroundings. She says, “Painting on location and from life really hones your powers of observation and helps to create your own style of interpreting nature. Nature keeps me honest and the skills learned are invaluable tools to bring back into the studio.”

Jeanne Mackenzie lives in Colorado where she is one of the founding members of the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters. Graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a teaching credential from San Diego State University, she eventually fell in love with and devoted herself to oils. “I am continually learning new ways to make my paintings more expressive and spontaneous. The art of learning to ‘see’ is the foundation for a good painting and my constant lesson”.
Her paintings are featured in several fine art galleries in Colorado and Arizona. She has shown at juried shows throughout the United States including the Oil Painters of America Show and Arts for the Parks-Top 100. She was been featured in Southwest Art Magazine’s Best of the West and International Artist Magazine-Master Artists. Jeanne shares her love of art by teaching national painting workshops and is on staff at the Denver Art Museum teaching color theory, composition and painting.
