Jennifer Lashbrook was born in Illinois and has grown up in Dallas Texas. She began painting when she was 10 years old after being enrolled in a landscape painting by her parents. Painting has been her passion ever since. She attended AP art classes in high school and has received a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts at the University of North Texas. She has shown her work at the Turley Gallery, Cora Stafford Gallery, and Artfunkle. Her favorite artists are Chuck Close and Salvador Dali and she draws reference from both. She creates unique portraiture whether thru oil paints or collage. Her oil paintings capture the subjects in a distinct light. Her swatch paintings showcase photo realistic quality, with a comical reference to the commercial, the digital, and the reproducible. Walk thru her gallery to view her work.
