Jerianne Van Dijk

In March, WASH is delighted to have Jerianne Van Dijk demonstrate for our members!

Jerianne works mostly in watercolor with some gouache, ink and crayon, with attention to mood and light. Her painting style is realistic and somewhat impressionistic. When it comes to illustration, her use of mediums entail a grand variety of techniques and materials, ranging from whimsical to detailed and classic.Jerianne Van Dijk

Residing in the Northern California foothills for the past 30 years, her work is often born of the unique charm and inspiration from her elevated environment in the Sierra Foothills. Jerianne considers herself primarily self-taught, but is definitely enhanced by regular collaborations with other professional artists and a trail of workshops with some of the most renowned artists in the nation.
