Jennifer O'Cualain Biography

In the summer of 2005, Jennifer O'Cualain set out to reinvent herself.  By combining years of experience as a professional portrait artist and her love of animals, Jennifer became a Wildlife Artist.

"I enjoy painting "portraits" of animals.  It's amazing how truly unique each creature is... how each has its own personality, just as we do.  I am also a bit of an anthropomorphist.  I love to create scenes in which my animals are experiencing human emotions.  In, "Abundance", the animals I've included are "sharing" the great wealth of the Banana Yucca.  "Sharing" would probably not be considered a common behavior between predator and prey."

Jennifer has earned numerous distinctions including the 2010 Oil Painters of America Animals Award of Excellence as well as a cash scholarship offered only once by critically acclaimed painter, James Reynolds, CAA.
