Barbara Courtney Jaenicke (pronounced JAN-i-kee) loved to draw and paint as a teenager and decided at an early age to pursue an art career in one form or another. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1986 from The College of New Jersey, taking as many fine art courses as she could, while also taking painting classes outside of her college studies. But with the desire to have a steady income right after college, she geared her education toward the commercial side and spent a little over a decade of her early career in advertising as an art director, then later shifted gears to a corporate role in marketing communications. In 2002, she was able to turn her focus to a career in fine art, pursuing it full steam ahead, and continues to do so with stubborn determination.

After living in the Atlanta, Georgia area for 23 years, Barbara and her husband and son relocated in May of 2015 to Bend, Oregon. Primarily a landscape painter, she’s excited to now explore and paint the scenery of the northwest part of the country.

Barbara holds Signature Memberships in Oil Painters of America (OPA), American Impressionist Society (AIS) and the Pastel Society of America (PSA), is an International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS) Eminent Pastelist, and is a popular workshop instructor throughout the US.
