Available Work



California Tonalist Jennifer Moses attended Virginia Commonwealth University receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts. After graduating, she moved to New York City where she began her professional career as an abstract painter in a studio just north of Canal Street. She had the opportunity to be immersed in the city’s art scene and worked part-time as an assistant for contemporary artist, Sandi Slone. In 1994, Jennifer relocated to Ojai, California. The transition facilitated a shift in style and subject matter. She was instantly drawn to her new environment and inspired by the pastoral charm of Ojai, the majestic California coastline and western landscape. In 2000, she came across the work of tonalist Daniel W. Pinkham whose emotive landscape paintings inspired Moses to search for the plein air tradition. Jennifer was introduced to the paintings of the Early California Impressionists and thus, the exploration into landscape painting began. Although mostly self taught in the plein air tradition, she studied privately with California Art Club Signature Artist, David Gallup and attended various workshops with other prominent plein air artists. While Moses draws inspiration from nature and creates compositional studies on location, her larger, studio works are elegantly refined and based on her spontaneous studies.

Artist's Statement

"Landscape painting cultivates my relationship with the honesty of nature and reveals itself in all aspects of my life. It is the essence of a place that is at the core of my work. I often find that I am drawn to the intimate aspects of a landscape; a moment in time or a specific feeling that unfolds when I’m quiet. The process for me is a celebration of beauty and the interrelatedness of all things. My greatest desire is to communicate that connection through the visual poetry of painting."


Moses' paintings have been exhibited in various galleries and museums including the Pasadena Museum of California Art, Autry Museum of Western Art, USC Fisher Museum of Art, Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art, Santa Paula Art Museum, Carnegie Art Museum, Hilbert Museum, USC Pacific Asia Museum, and Carnegie Art Museum.
