Award-winning Little Rock artist Jane Dees Lovett Holt began her study of painting with Jack Diner at the Arkansas Arts Center. She then graduated from the University of Arkansas with a BA in art and studied portraiture with Michael Shane Neal. By invitation, Holt painted with Jeff Legg in France as part of the Plein Air Masters' Program.

Holt paints in oil from life, either en plein air or with a model, and is a founding member of the Portrait Society of America and an associate member of the Oil Painters of America.

Her soft-realism oil paintings are in national and international collections, including the Arkansas Court of Appeals, the Arkansas Governor's Mansion, NEA Baptist Hospital in Jonesboro, and the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. To learn more about Holt's art, visit her website at

I paint with passion. Always aware of the effects of light, I find great reward in capturing the way it reflects off my subjects and the shadows they cast. I desire to lead the viewer into quiet places with warm feelings, similar to what I experience as my paintings evolve. My work is soft realism with a little surprise. It is my own style!
