About the Artist

Jennifer Branch

Jennifer Branch creates light-filled watercolor landscape paintings from her studio in Northwest Georgia. A modern impressionist, her paintings explore the full possibilities of transparent watercolor, a medium bringing color and light to life.

Coming from a strong family tradition of artists, Jennifer Branch began her painting career at an early age and has painted continuously every since.

Beginning by selling her pen and ink sketches before she could drive, Jennifer Branch's only profession has been that of artist. After exploring all mediums, the limitless possibilities of watercolor captured her. Primarily self taught, her watercolor style is uniquely vivid in color and concept.

Jennifer Branch's workshops draw artists from around the world to learn from her unique painting style. Her companion painting workshop videos inspire many artists. An article demonstrating her painting techniques was featured in Watercolor Magazine, Summer 2004, Paradise Found, The Florida Everglades.

Balancing atmosphere and technique, Jennifer Branch alternates her frequent and varied inspirational travels with periods of intense studio work. She might be found painting or sketching anywhere from a remote mountain stream to the city wilds. Her swirling images of sea turtles swimming, dramatic night city scenes, moody oceans and exquisite watercolor portraits grace many collectors'walls internationally.


Jennifer Branch paints small jewels of paintings evoking memories of a place or time and huge color bursts of paintings filling a room with joy. Her sensuous use of color and form brings vitality to many private and corporate collections in the United States and abroad.


Jennifer Branch is a modern impressionist bringing her subjects to vibrant life on paper.

Any Questions or Comments?
I paint anything and everything in watercolor. My style is vibrantly impressionistic - full of color and life! My paintings show life, from the ear-to-ear grin on a child's face to the exuberant colors in a flower's bloom. Life is full of joy and I paint to show that joy!

Impressionism with a modern exuberance.
My husband, Roger, and I; accompanied by our kids, Edwin and Owen, our dog, Ranger, and our parrot, Lucy, hike trails, paddle rivers, climb mountains, and brave city traffic around the world to discover new inspirations for paintings.
There's a new painting almost everywhere!

My paintings are scattered around the world in private and corporate collections. I have sold my work since I was fifteen, so quite a few people collect my work.
I do not give out the names of my collectors unless it's a public purchase. I value my privacy and respect theirs.

"I do not know what I seem to the world, but to myself I appear to have been like a boy playing upon the seashore and diverting myself by now and then finding a smoother pebble or prettier shell than ordinary, while the great ocean of truth lay before me all undiscovered."
Sir Isaac Newton

" ... this is an occupation known as painting, which calls for imagination, and skill of hand, in order to discovers things not seen, hiding themselves under the shadow of natural objects, and to fix them with the hand, presenting to plain sight what does not actually exist."
Cellini
"Originality does not consist in saying what no one has ever said before, but in saying exactly what you think yourself."
