ABOUT JESSI

WESTERN BASED CONTEMPORARY ARTIST, JESSI WEST LUNDEEN CREATES PAINTINGS, ILLUSTRATIONS, AND INSTALLATIONS THAT SPAN MANY GENRES AND MEDIUMS. HER WORK IS ALWAYS A PLAYFUL EXPERIMENT WITH COLOR, TEXTURE, REALITY, AND EMOTION. 

A contemporary visual artist currently living and working in Denver, Colorado, Jessi West Lundeen first began her art journey studying interior design and studio art. She received her Masters in Art Education and developed a colorful style of abstracted landscapes and figurative painting. As a creator of things, Jessi experiments with color and creates art that speaks to her soul.

 

In addition to having many private collectors, the artist's work has been shown at Mirada Fine Art Gallery, Lupine Gallery, Wild Hands Gallery, and Visual Interest Gallery. She has represented her work in group shows in New York City, Bellingham, WA and Jackson, WY. The latest series, "Fruit Questions" is on display at Visual Interest in Denver, CO through August 2019. After August, the show will be on rotation throughout Denver. Stay tuned for updates. 

ABOUT THE ART

With an interior design background, Jessi loves creating custom one-of-a-kind pieces for her clients. The artist works closely with interior designers to create the perfect pieces for each project. From custom wallpaper, custom interior painting, murals, and fabric to custom paintings, the artist can create any visual elements needed to complete each project. 

My life has been a form of art. My art changes with my life experiences. With a deep breath, the mountains speak. Mountains, rural landscapes and natural elements are always at the heart of what I create. Whether in the form of birds, mountains, flowers or abstract colorscapes, my work breathes, laughs, and holds love in every stroke.
