Jenny Germann creates location specific woodburned paintings. She immerses herself in a variety of regions and cultures in order to reflect the narratives of the area. Her work draws influence from her travels and experiences.
She uses a blend of pyrography (woodburning) and painting. 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, observation, and personal expression.
Jenny’s work is framed by her husband, designer and cabinetmaker Evan Germann. Her woodburned paintings are currently available at Red Raven Art Company in Lancaster, PA and Exhibit B Gallery in Souderton, PA. Born in Kansas, Jenny lives and works in Lancaster, PA. She earned her BFA from the University of Kansas and her MS from Eastern University.
