Jane Shoenfeld


Jane Shoenfeld has engaged in careful and loving observation of nature all her life.  She states “I paint to reveal the power of the landscape beneath the surface.  Whether I am painting outdoors or in my studio, I follow the energy of the unconscious. I create subtle transitions and shifting figure ground relationships to engage the imagination. I want the viewer to linger, to wonder, to allow themselves to be immersed and merge with the image.”

I grew in Maryland and DC. We were a low income-high creativity family. My mother was a successful short fiction writer, at a time when women were encouraged to be housewives. My father was a journalist.  I received a scholarship to Pratt Institute and moved to Brooklyn. In 1987, I made the journey west to New Mexico because of the natural beauty and open spaces. I've lived longer in New Mexico than anywhere else.  I have a beautiful studio in Santa Fe where I earn my living by painting, teaching art, and helping people through art therapy.
