Introducing Jessi West Lundeen

We're thrilled to welcome Jessi West Lundeen and her remarkable contemporary artwork to Mirada Fine Art!

Jessi West Lundeen, represented by Mirada Fine Art in Colorado.
Born and raised in Jackson, Wyoming, Jessi West Lundeen grew up with Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park as her backyard.  Surrounded by stunning scenery, she found herself compelled to capture that beauty artistically.  Initially self-taught, she developed a distinct style of abstracted landscapes and figurative painting.

Knowing that she wanted to continue to express herself creatively, Jessi decided to pursue a formal education in Fine Art. A Bachelors of Art in Studio Art/Painting and a Masters in Art Education not only honed her considerable skills, but served to reinforce her desire to capture not only the splendor in the world, but the thought and emotion it invokes in her.

“My work is a collection of ideas and images that have followed me throughout life, growing as I do. Place and space are my building blocks; I like to talk about environments through my work, starting a dialogue about human experience.”

Ms. Lundeen uses saturated color and strong lines as bridges between vision and emotion.  She also employs these tools to create a visual space for viewers to rest and consider how a piece speaks to them individually.

Jessi’s latest body of work focuses on the dichotomy between landscape and cityscape, nature and humanity.  She strives to take on ideas of growth and power, counterbalanced by the natural history illustrated as a background story.

Jessi West Lundeen’s work has been displayed in galleries from Jackson Hole to New York City, and is found in private collections throughout the country.  We are thrilled to introduce her to our Colorado clients!  Welcome Jessi!
