Barbara Jaenicke received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1986 from The College of New Jersey, majoring in Art with an emphasis in Advertising and Design, while also studying fine art outside of her college studies. Her early career was spent in advertising as an art director, then later in a corporate marketing communications role. In 2002, she was able to turn her focus to a career in fine art, pursuing it full steam ahead.

Barbara works pastel and oil, and strives to capture light-filled landscapes in an impressionist style. She’s earned the distinctions of Master Pastelist in the Pastel Society of America and Eminent Pastelist in the International Association of Pastel Societies, and holds Signature Memberships in the American Impressionist Society and Oil Painters of America.

Featured numerous times in the Pastel Journal and many other art publications, Barbara is a popular workshop instructor throughout the US, teaching workshops coast to coast each year.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Barbara later lived in Atlanta, Georgia and then moved west in 2015 with her husband and son to Bend, Oregon in search of inspiring landscape scenery…and snow, one of Barbara’s favorite subjects to paint!
