I am an abstract landscape painter and educator currently living in Chicago with my golden retriever RileyI
I studied Art Education at Arizona State University. After graduation, I taught 7th-9th grade Drawing, Painting, Art Foundations, Sculpture and Photography for several years in Utah before moving to the windy city in 2019.
Ever since I was a little girl in Flagstaff, Arizona I loved being outside camping, running around and breathing in the smells of Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. Each season brings with it a new adventure and chance to explore nature in a different light.
My goal is for you to feel and always remember the peace and beauty of nature through my landscapes.

A Brief History
May 2012 - Graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts
August 2014 - Moved to Utah and officially became an Art Teacher. I have loved teaching for the last six years in various schools.
October 2015 - Launched Vinture Apparel with two other amazing ladies. I was in charge of graphic designs for the apparel and social media. During this time I learned Photoshop on my own and realized how much I loved sharing my creative work with others (even though it was only through apparel).
July 2018 - We decided to close Vinture and I took over the online shop and social media account for Vinture and turned it into Mallery Jane!
September 2018 - I received my first commision and was beyond ecstatic but also nervous! I also started producing and selling my art online.
February 2019 - I launched my first ever collection titled "Lines". Art Bloom Co (an online company selling prints) reached out to me wanting to create prints out of three of the paintings, which they currently still sell in a variety of sizes. This was my first licensing agreement!
August 2019 - Launched my first online classes, Watercolor Landscape and Palette Knife.
September 2019 - I moved from Salt Lake City, Utah to Chicago and loved the change of pace but also missed the mountains immensely. The move gave me new confidence in my art and my style was starting to evolve.
March 2020- Launched my own YouTube Channel! I realized how much I truly love teaching and creating tutorials!
