ABOUT JOCELYN AUDETTE

I am an artist and landscape painter whose paintings depict the beauty of the western United States - its mountains, rugged coast, creeks, rivers, valleys, deserts, rockscapes, farmlands, orchards, and vineyards.  I also paint wherever I travel and have paintings from various trips.  Many of my landscape paintings are painted "en plein air", or outside on location. 

 

While the major focus of my art is the landscape, my work includes the figure, animals, still lifes, and other subjects of interest to me.  Some of my work is conceptual and very abstract, often pursuing my interest in the illumination of detail, a theme I explored in college. 

Being an artist is all about visually expressing my own experiences and perceptions...and as I love new discoveries and variety, this curiosity manifests in my work.

My paintings are oils on panel, linen, canvas, and paper as well as watercolor, encaustic, gouache, charcoal, ink, and other mediums.
