Juror and Awards Judge:

Barbara Jaenicke

The PSC is proud to announce that the judge and juror is Barbara Jaenicke. Barbara Jaenicke (pronounced JAN-i-kee) loved to draw and paint as a teenager and desired at an early age to pursue a career of some sort in the art world. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1986 from The College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College), majoring in Art with an emphasis in Advertising and Design, while also studying fine art outside of her college studies. Her

early career was spent in advertising as an art director, then later in a corporate marketing communications role. In 2002, she was able to turn her focus to a career in fine art, pursuing it full steam ahead, and continues to do so with stubborn determination.


Barbara works in pastel and oil and strives to capture light-filled landscapes in an impressionist style. She has earned the distinctions of Master Pastelist in the Pastel Society of America (PSA) and Eminent Pastelist in the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS) and holds Signature Memberships in the Oil Painters of America (OPA) and American Impressionist Society (AIS).


Her award highlights include 2nd Place in the 2018 AIS National Juried Show, Plein Air Magazine's Plein Air Salon competition wins in August/September 2017 (Best Water) and April/May 2014 (2nd Place), multiple BoldBrush awards including Best of Show in March 2015, and the People's Choice award in the 2014 AIS Juried Exhibition. She has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine (October 2018), Plein Air Magazine (September 2018), Fine Art Connoisseur's "Three to Watch" column (February 2018), Southwest Art's "Artists to Watch" column (January 2017), and her work has been published numerous times in the Pastel Journal.


Barbara is a popular workshop instructor throughout the US, teaching between 8-12 workshops coast to coast each year. Visit Barbara's website workshop page for details and her schedule, and also to find out about her instructional videos and monthly online lessons.


After living in the Atlanta, Georgia area for 23 years, Barbara and her husband and son relocated in May of 2015 to Bend, Oregon. Primarily a landscape painter, she's excited to now explore and paint the spectacular scenery of central Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
