Jennifer Landis is a self taught acrylic artist. As a nature lover, she is inspired by the beauty of sky, water, and earth’s metallic minerals. Using nature’s own color palette with added pops of color, she attempts to capture the beauty of the world around us. Jennifer’s artwork has a flow that is often described as “calming” to the senses. Her hope is that her artwork conveys a sense of wonder and inspiration to others.
Jennifer has always loved to draw and sketch but never really explored painting until about 5-6 yrs ago. Initially, she began by reproducing other works of art in an attempt to build her skills with brush/palette knife. It wasn’t until 2-3 yrs ago that she began making original works of art, triggered by a dive into the fluid acrylics world. She credits fluid acrylics with unlocking the abstract part of her structured mind and opening a new realm of creativity.
Always experimenting, her artwork now ranges from sweeping fluid acrylic abstracts to her signature style of fluid landscapes to mixed media/ heavy textured palette knife pieces.
Jennifer is a Lakeway resident and represented by Adams Galleries. Her work has been exhibited in multiple local businesses throughout both Lakeway and Bee Cave,TX. She is a member of Round Rock Arts, Bee Cave Arts, and has had her work displayed in the last 4 consecutive exhibits at Art For The People Gallery.
Over the last 2 years, Jennifer has pushed through her introvert fears and has proactively pursued opportunities to share her work throughout Austin. Her drive is fueled by the fact that her life of chronic pain and chronic migraine disease may only offer her a limited window of time in which she can actively produce new artwork. Although she is limited physically, she loves to volunteer and interact with other artists, and is grateful for the opportunities and friendships that CAS has given her.

We are looking forward to another great year, filled with opportunities to exhibit our art, to learn from our fellow artists and to support each other on our creative journeys. I am honored to serve as your new President for 2020 and will do my best to ensure the continued success of CAS.
We are fortunate to have a wonderful group of volunteers who serve on the board, coordinate our exhibits and help to hang art. I am grateful for their efforts and support. Please help our coordinators by carefully reading the call for art, checking your calendar before submitting to make sure you can drop-off and pick-up your art on time and complying with the hanging guidelines. Please let us know if you are interested in helping out. New volunteers and new ideas will help CAS thrive and improve.
Please come to our next General meeting on February 5th at 7 pm. Networking begins at 6:30 pm. If you would like to meet others to trade help with drop-offs and pick-ups, this would be an ideal opportunity. Our presentation will be on “Exhibiting Your Art”. We will explain the different types of CAS exhibits, our Calls for Art, hanging guidelines, pricing, framing, creating an online presence and will hold a Q&A session with a panel of experienced professional artists. We hope that sharing lessons learned will improve everyone’s exhibit experience. The meeting location will be announced shortly.
I value your participation in our CAS community and look forward to the year ahead!
