Jenny Germann woodburned paintings draw influence from her travels and daily experiences. In order to create these narrative snapshots, she uses a blend of pyrography (woodburning) and painting. Pyrography lends a controlled and textural element, while the gouache is experimental and evocative. She mixes the mediums as a way to communicate observations, using making as a form of introspection, 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.
