Jenifer Bacon is an oil painter living and working her studio in Horseshoe Bay, Texas. She recently moved to the hill country from Colorado to escape the bitter cold winters. She loves the beautiful landscapes, and the wildlife in this magical and inspiring place.

Over the years she has lived in many different places from California, Arizona, New Mexico, and more recently Colorado. She grew up in Laguna Beach, California, and lived in a house located high on cliffs overlooking the ocean with stunning views of the land and sea. She had the opportunity to observe many birds of prey and the playful ravens that flew over the cliffs. It greatly influenced her art and thinking. There she started to wonder about the inner lives of animals and birds. She might even have become a scientist except, art was her real passion. But even in this lovely setting she would have traded anyone to live on a ranch riding horses all day and being a cowgirl.

After graduating from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in Studio Art, she traveled throughout Europe experiencing the culture and especially the art. She’s participated in many different painting workshops including Peggy Judy and Rebecca Crowell over the years.

She currently lives in Horseshoe Bay, Texas with her two dogs, and one horse. For fun she rides competes in reined cow horse events and hopes to do herding events with her dog.
