Jean Requa Lubin
Contact Number: (858) 354-1948
Born in California, Jean grew up in American Samoa and Juneau, Alaska, where she developed a passion for wildlife and the beauty of nature. "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.
Invaluable study at the Scottsdale Artists' School provided the fundamentals in painting and inspiration that laid the groundwork for her impressions of nature and animal portraiture. Awards and honors followed, from plein air festivals and regional and national shows.
In the mountain community of Idyllwild above Palm Springs, California, Jean was on the founding Board of Directors of the Art Alliance of Idyllwild and chaired the Students in the Galleries and Plein Air Festivals from 2002 to 2005.
Several horses figured prominently in the development of her art, most notably her half-bred, Rebel, whom she rode side-saddle in the Washington, D.C. International Horse Show.
Jean's painting "Road Test" of a local Missouri Foxtrotter, was selected for exhibition at the American Artists' Professional League 75th Grand National in New York City, and after nomination into membership at the Salmagundi Club, Jean enjoyed exhibiting in New York.
In 2008 and 2009 her paintings "Siesta at Jenny Lake Corral" and "Imposition" won awards at the AAEA Fall Juried Show and her work has been juried into the Top 100, Arts for the Parks, the Western Spirit Show at the Old West Museum in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the Grand National Rodeo Celebration of Western Art at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, the Cattlemen's Show in Paso Robles, California, the Stampede Art Show in Greeley, Colorado, and her art has been featured on Chronicle of the Horse magazine covers, and in November, 2010, she was elected into membership in the American Academy of Equine Art.
Specializing in equine portrait commissions, Jean's studio and home are in San Diego, where she lives with her husband, Harve, and she is represented by Judith Hale Gallery in Santa Barbara County.
