Jennifer Dubost’s initial incentive for creating pastel portraits of people and pets came from her fondness of a childhood pastel portrait that had captured the essence of her mother at age seven. She was inspired to sharpen her skills in the use of pastels to evocatively render cherished people or pets for current day clients. A beautiful pastel portrait can be enjoyed now and for generations to come.
Jennifer delights in working with the luminous beauty of pastels and enjoys bringing out the unique personal qualities of each individual in her portraits. Portraits are not simply an apt likeness, but are imbued with personality and vivacity.
Jennifer earned a BA in Art from Smith College and has since taken classes at the New England School of Art and Design and at the Decordova Museum, as well as pursuing private instruction in portraiture. Jennifer has exhibited her portraits in a number of juried shows and takes joy in creating commissioned portraits for clients.
