Jack Vincent Barnhill has spent his life living and working in Europe, Africa, North and Central America and Asia. As a child Barnhill was drawn to the diverse beauty and complexity of the human face. At age 50, he began studying at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. Portraiture expresses his fascination with humanity. He draws and paints until the image sees the light and reveals its essence.
Barnhill enjoys lecturing and teaching both private and public classes in Advanced Drawing, History of Pigments, Advances in 3-D Art, Paint Making, Pastel Painting and Drawing, and Color Mixing and Theory. He is skilled in multiple medias—oil, pastels and mixed media—and currently teaches at the Naples Art Center. His works have been in 16 national and international shows and have been reviewed in three magazines. In 2015, his Self Portrait won first place at the TAG Gallery’s California Open Competition. In November 2019, he was invited to show three paintings at the 19th International Art Exchange Exhibition at the National Art Center in Tokyo, Japan, where he won an award of excellence.
He is a member of the Oil Painters of America, Portrait Society of America, National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society and the Pasadena Society of Artists. He is also a founding board member of Warrior Theatre, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing innovative art therapy to survivors of child abuse. Barnhill is also an Associate Artist for Unison Colour. He currently lives in Naples, Florida. —
