about the artist

        Jennifer Dubis received her BFA in Illustration from the University of Hartford, graduating summa cum laude with University Honors.  There she studied with accomplished illustrators, Bill Thomson and Deborah DeSaix.  She also had an opportunity to attend workshops in New York, instructed by Jack Beal and Sondra Freckleton, and Italy, with Fred Wessel, Jeremiah Patterson, and special guest artists. In the spring of 2006, she has earned her Masters Degree in Education from Lesley University and is currently a full-time art teacher, as well as a freelance illustrator.

      Dubis’ work has been exhibited in New York City at the Society of Illustrators’ Annual Student Exhibition Competition in 2003, where one hundred and eight pieces were chosen from forty-five hundred nationwide entries, traveling to the Illustration Conference in Philadelphia.  Her illustrations were also featured in several on-campus publications, and exhibited a piece in the Alexander A. Goldfarb Student Awards Exhibition.  She was awarded three ribbons, including her first ever “Best of Show”, at the Greater Lynn Arts and Crafts Society’s 18th Annual Spring Show.  In the summer of 2005, her first book cover illustration for The The Pirate Queen

was published.  Her first solo show, Visual Intrigue, was displayed at the Gallery at Stoneham Theater in 2007.

       Although her primary medium is oils, she also enjoys watercolors, pen and ink, and collage.  She continues to be inspired by people, both children and adults, whom she observes in everyday situations.  No matter where life takes her, Dubis plans to continue making new and intriguing artwork, and, hopefully, publish her own children’s book.   

  She is currently a Visual Arts Teacher for grades K-8 and maintains a student online gallery so that her students and their families can keep up with what they create in mater where they are in the world!
