About the Artist

Jennifer Clinard came to landscape painting from a thirty year career in theater and film. Growing up in Florida, she completed a masterʼs degree in Constructive Design at Florida State University. After moving to San Francisco, she became a scenic artist, painting and sculpting for the San Francisco Opera and San Francisco Ballet.

Since her return to Florida, Jennifer has explored the world of plein air landscape painting. She initially exhibited at the Railroad Square and South of Soho Galleries. For the last five years, she has shown her paintings at the LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts, Gadsden Art Center, Tallahassee Museum of history and Natural Science, and FSU Museum of Fine Arts.

Artist's Statement

"I love exploring the landscapes of Florida. It gives me a sense of place and home. I am especially intrigued with the wild places such as the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge. Outdoor painting demands both acute observation and my full attention. Although the product is a still image, the process feels more like an exquisite slow movie, I strive for a sense of oneness and congruency with the landscape.”

Her artistic associations include the Tallahassee Artists League, Gadsden Artists Guild, Alla Prima Landscape Group and Tallahassee Sketchcrawl Group. Her work is in collections at Agnes Scott College and the Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science.
