Jennifer Vranes 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 collectors and Art Galleries throughout the United States. Recently, the art industry’s top magazine, Art Business News, spotlighted Vranes in the article “Time Honored Appeal,” as one of the world’s top selling landscape artists. Soon thereafter, Vranes was featured in an “Artist Exclusive” that was distributed to over 20,000 businesses internationally.
Her paintings were recently secured by the U.S. State Department to be placed in the “ART in Embassies” collection in Bamako, Mali. This exclusive program is a vital form of cultural diplomacy for United States Embassies, and State Department curators selected the paintings of Jennifer Vranes to represent the talent of the United States of America to dignitaries of all countries.
An extensive world traveler, Vranes gets her inspiration from places she has seen from all over the world. Through her art, she transports the viewer to distant lands where poppies grow wildly in breathtaking meadows, where fragrant Lavender is farmed in lush rows in France, and where aspens quake in the Rocky Mountains. Vranes finds the most beautiful gems of nature, and captures them on canvas for all to experience and enjoy.
Vranes studied oil painting at Brigham Young University, graduating in 1998 with a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree. Shortly after graduation, she moved to San Francisco to see what the exciting art scene had to offer. It was in San Francisco that her art career took flight. Today, her unique paintings can be seen in top Galleries throughout the United States, and in Collector's Homes world-wide.
When asked about her successful Art career, Vranes says simply, “I paint to bring joy to the lives and homes of others. In a world of growing uncertainty, I want my paintings to provide the viewer a momentary escape from reality. We all wish we could retreat to a more peaceful and happy place, and what better place than into a beautiful landscape! My art carries that magic!”
