Jessi West Lundeen received her BA in Studio Art/Painting from Western Washington University in 2009 and her MAED from the University of Nebraska Kearney in 2011. Jessi was born in Jackson, WY. Growing up with Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park in her back yard, she developed a colorful style of abstracted landscape and portrait painting. Jessi's paintings express ideas of nature, memory, and emotion in her bright colors and child-like brush strokes. She paints from memory in order to encompass the entire feeling of a landscape. She has been represented by multiple galleries in Jackson, WY and in addition has exhibited in New York City, NY and Bellingham, WA. Jessi currently lives and works in New York City.
