Jane Bloodgood-Abrams is a native of the Hudson Valley Region of New York. Continuing the tradition of fine landscape painting that took root in America in the early 19th century, Bloodgood-Abrams developed a distinct style that builds upon the innovations of the past. Drawing inspiration from the spiritual aspects of the Hudson River School, as well as the heightened effects of light and the subtleties of atmosphere found in Luminist and Tonalist works, her highly evocative paintings gently traverse the line between reality and reverie. Bloodgood-Abrams states “My works are my response to those particular moments of deep connection to spirit experienced in nature. Through painting the landscape, I seek to connect with something beyond everyday life. Painting becomes my tool for conveying the essence, mystery and transient quality found in nature."
Jane Bloodgood-Abrams received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz. She is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, was inducted into the National Association of Women Artists, and is listed in "Who's Who in American Art. Her work has been chosen for numerous regional, national, and international exhibitions, including the Florence Biennialle in Italy, exhibitions in Austria and Germany, and several exhibits at the National Arts Club in New York City. She is the recipient of a Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation grant, participated in the Rhine-Hudson Artist Exchange in Cologne, Germany, and has been selected as semi-finalist for the Basil H. Alkazzi $20,000 award for painting. Jane Bloodgood-Abrams' paintings are included in numerous corporate, museum and private collections and is represented by galleries throughout the U.S.
