Jane Degenhardt

(American, born 1958)

Jane Degenhardt creates paintings of nature that echo our emotional, intellectual, and spiritual experiences. She notes, “My paintings are an invitation to take a closer look at our human relationship to the natural world, then act with reverence and humility toward that connection.”

Degenhardt earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in California in 1980 and a Master in Education from Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2004. She has been making art, teaching art, and advocating for the arts in education for over 35 years. She currently paints and teaches in Vancouver, Southwestern Washington.
