As a watercolorist, I long to embrace all the wonderful things this medium has to offer, blossoms, drips, unexpected things that happen - lost edges, movement of pigment. I want to keep them all to remember that it is very much like life itself. Most artists feel that this medium is difficult to control and the most challenging to paint with. But I feel the total opposite of this. I long for all of the uniqueness and beauty watercolors have to offer and to leave room for the viewer to fill in what may be missing or nearly suggested.
As a teacher I love to share this passion of watercolor techniques, theories and joy with all of my students. It is my hope that they find enjoyment in interpreting their world with paint, splatters, drips and color by embracing the unexpected and unplanned.
Most of my paintings are available as framed originals - those that have sold or not for sale are available as a high quality reproduction prints. In addition, I am available for work for hire and commissioned pieces - your loved child or blessed grandchild, or pet.
I had taught my FEARLESS WATERCOLORS at the Art League of Long Island and The Artists Studio at Chelsea Mansion until March 2020 when I taught exclusively on line and reached students from all of the US and internationally. I still run on-line classes every Tuesday.
Every year I do a 4-day workshop at the Landgrove Inn in Vermont which will be in June 2023, and July/August I'll be at the Omega Center in Rhinebeck, NY.
In person classes are on Thursdays at The Huntington Arts Council. Please contact me if you are interested in any of these or sign up for my newsletter which alerts you to all of this information https://www.janguarinofineart.com/email-newsletter.
I SO enjoy teaching my watercolor techniques, theories and joy with all of my students. It is my hope that they find enjoyment in interpreting their world with paint, splatters, drips and color by embracing the unexpected and unplanned.
I am at The Firefly Artists Gallery in Northport, NY where I exhibit and sell my paintings. I have exhibited at the Heckscher Museum, the William Reis Gallery, the Huntington Arts Council, the Long Island Museum, the Art League of Long Island, The Art Guild and am a permanent artist at The Firelyfly Gallery in Northport, NY.
I am a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology and have been a graphic artist designing marketing materials for businesses for 45 years. I recently retired from graphic design to focus entirely on my painting and teaching career. Interesting for me to notice that there are many skills that I learned at FIT and in business that I utilize in my teaching.
