A juried member of the American Academy of Equine Art and the Salmagundi Club in NYC, Jean is also a member of the High Desert Art League, and she enjoys exhibiting throughout the West.

  “And for me, it’s especially so gratifying when the viewer feels an emotional connection to my painting, and it’s this communication that’s so meaningful.”

  Most recently, Jean’s Oregon mustang painting “Steens Mountain Rivalry” was exhibited in the American Academy of Equine Art’s 2020 Fall Showcase.

  Growing up in American Samoa and Juneau, Alaska, Jean Lubin found visual inspiration everywhere — from lush jungles and green seas teaming with tropical fish to the unspoiled wilderness of the North and its abundant wildlife. “I was so fortunate to enjoy a childhood in such wonderfully exotic and inspiring places.”  And the long-lasting influences of these far-away lands are at the heart of her artistic spirit.  A family move to Virginia introduced her to the world of horses and equestrian competition, and her favorite painting genre — equine art.   She says, “I truly think that horses are the most noble and paintable subject.”

  Created with painterly realism, Jean’s art is a reflection of her interpretation of the subject, whether wildlife of the Alaskan wilderness or the action and color of the equestrian world.  And these influences have stayed with her finding expression in lush oil paint.

  “I enjoy exploring the fascinating relationship between horse and human, whether it‘s a wild bronc in a pitched battle with an equally determined rodeo cowboy or a sleek jumper and equestrian partner sailing smoothly over a course of jumps, and it’s a profound pleasure to preserve a moment in this particular relationship.”
