Whitney Jayne

For Whitney Jayne, her art is about making connections, and she likes to paint favorite Oregon vistas, “the places people go and make memories.” In rekindling shared experiences, she hopes to strengthen bonds we feel for nature, animals and each other.
“You have to have connection before you care about something,” she says.

Many of her bright, dreamy renditions can be discovered in our Home & Gift section on greeting cards, prints, stickers and magnets. A professional artist for a decade, she calls the Bend area home. She says she’s thrilled to be doing what she loves for a living, even though it felt like it wasn’t meant to be at one point.

In college, she began to have physical reactions to oil paints, her preferred medium at the time. She feared her career would be over just as it was beginning. She began experimenting with digital tablets and quickly grew to love it. She prints her work and adds acrylic paint to give it a textured look and feel.

Having found her niche, she applies her talents in ways that improve the world around her, both through her work and by donating part of her proceeds to organizations that help bring us all together.
