Jenine Clevenger works with mixed media and encaustic on panel. She uses color and shape to suggest natural and built landscapes. Her use of texture gives a sculptural element to her paintings. Inspired by the natural and technological landscapes that surround her, Clevenger uses acrylics, charcoal, paper, ink, pastels, and encaustic to create translucent layers that build in intensity and resolve into a balance of color, shape and texture.
Clevenger was raised in northern New Mexico and received her B.F.A. in 1994 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her paintings have been exhibited nationally, and are included in numerous private collections.
