About Jennifer Lynne Gildred

Born in Mexico City and raised in Southern California, Jennifer Lynne Gildred grew up to have a deep appreciation for the ocean, making art, and spending as much time in the natural world as she could. In 1986, she attended The SCAD Arts program in France, then under the Cleveland Institute of Art. She then went on to receive her Bachelor of Art in Fine Art from The University of Southern California, Los Angeles, and a Master of Art in Psychology/Art Therapy from Sonoma State University. Gildred has traveled around the world and has gained a broad perspective of the human palette. She has shown her work in various locations globally, but primarily in California. A retired art therapist, she can be found painting in her home art studio in Sonoma County, CA.
