Jane Anne Grassli Woodhead

Jane Anne was born and raised in North Ogden, Utah to artistic parents who instilled in their children a love of, and appreciation for, the beauty of nature. She grew up drawing horses and flowers and found her creative voice studying design at Brigham Young University from where she earned her degree. She has now combined her love of nature and design sense with her landscape paintings. She and her husband live in American Fork, Utah and are the parents of four children and 12 grandchildren.

"During the stillness of the early morning, and the warmth of the evening light, I feel especially grateful to be a part of God's creations. It is that feeling I hope to honor and share through my paintings.  Ultimately, I hope the viewer will feel a similar connection and it can become a shared experience.

 

I am also very grateful to mentors who took me seriously as I tried to establish an art career later in life.  They have been influential in both improvement of skills, as well as encouraging and motivating me when it's been difficult. I hope to do that for others. "

Jane Anne has studied with Rob Adamson, Josh Clare, David Dibble, Kimball Geisler, Erin Meads, John Poon,  Ron Rencher,  and  Ken Spencer.
