About
Jenny Harmon-Scott
Born in Oklahoma City in 1962, Jenny Harmon-Scott started oil painting at the age of ten. From that early age, she knew that painting was her true passion and that creating would always be the driving force in her life. Jenny began studying oil painting with Oklahoma artist Maria De La Juen every week after school. It was during this time that Jenny became greatly inspired by the works of the Old Masters. She soon developed a love for the rich glazes and dark dramatic tones of the Dutch painters of the Delft School, which is still reflected in her work today. Jenny spent her summers on the Oregon coast, painting and attending art workshops by world-renown artist; Frank Boyden. In 1980 Jenny moved to Oregon where she studied art at the University of Oregon and later at Oregon State University. After college she took time to follow her heart to paint and travel.Jenny returned a few years later to the Pacific Northwest, now ready for a challenge where she could use her skills in illustration, knowledge of color, and composition. In 1991 Jenny began working for the sportswear company Nike. Initially starting as an illustrator and graphic artist, she later moved on to become a creator of color and finish for the company on a global scale. Jenny traveled extensively through Europe and beyond, inspiring groundbreaking new thought in the design and use of color throughout the sportswear industry. While still at Nike, Jenny continued to paint, selling to both private and commercial parties. After sixteen years, including a six-year period at adidas Inc, and ending as a Senior Designer for Nike Global Footwear, she realized it was time to return to her true passion and paint full time.

Jenny has been commissioned for paintings worldwide. She continues to travel yearly for inspiration for her work.

Jenny currently lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband Shay Scott and their crew of dogs and cat.
