Jolene Sunding
space Jolene is a painter and former graphic designer living in the Pacific Northwest creating contemporary art and design. She works in acrylic or watercolor, painting semi-abstractly with mark making at the end using oil pastels, acrylic pens, markers, and varied implements dipped in paint.

For some time, she has been interested in ideas related to mixing abstract elements with more realistic interpretations of subjects. The common thread in her art is the acknowledgment of the range of emotions we experience as humans on a scale of joy to grief.

She graduated from Black Hills State University in 1992 with a degree in commercial art and a minor in fine art. She moved to Port Townsend, WA, in 1999 from the Black Hills of South Dakota. Artistic opportunities and support in Port Townsend are plentiful. She discovers new ways of expressing herself evolving all the time. This in turn pushes her forward to be more prolific, learn new techniques, and to improve with each effort. She happily takes full advantage of her creative license to work in a variety of styles. The results are a rewarding personal journey. Jolene has had paintings accepted into gallery shows since 2002.
