"My art is an expression of awe, excitement and gratitude while in the natural world.”
American artist, Jolyn Wells-Moran's landscape oil paintings combine painterly realism and expressionism. She is inspired by several contemporary impressionist/expressionist artists, such as Katherine Townsend, Erik Jacobson, Richard Claremont, Vitaly Makarov, and, historically, Zakharov. Wells-Moran studied at the Institute for American Universities, Marchutz School of Drawing and Painting, Aix-en-Provence, France; Gage Academy of Fine Art, Seattle, WA; in undergraduate art courses and with masters, such as Jill Carver, Jacobson, Matt Smith, and others.
Wells-Moran hones her process daily. She has shown in juried shows since 2012 in varied venues and several solo exhibitions. She’s a signature member of the Puget Sound Group Northwest Artists (PSGNA), Plein Air Washington Artists (PAWA), Women Artists of the West (WAOW) and the National Oil and Acrylic Society (NOAPS).
