Born in Hutchinson, KS, Jenny now lives in Lancaster, PA. She holds a BFA from the University of Kansas and is earning her MS from Eastern University.
Jenny Germann’s work is based on locations that hold significance in her life. She uses landscapes to convey experiences, often drawing influence from her travels and daily observations.
She uses a blend of pyrography (woodburning) and painting to express her vision. Pyrography lends a controlled and physically satisfying aspect to the work, whereas the painting is experimental and evocative. She mixes the mediums as a way to communicate her perspective, using making as a form of introspection, and personal expression.
“My work is representative of places and things that are meaningful to me. I like to illustrate natural elements, hazy memories, and my physical surroundings. Having spent much of my life in Kansas and quite a bit of time on my grandparent’s farm in Nebraska, my personal definition of peace gravitates towards open spaces and farm life."
