Jenny Germann creates location specific woodburned paintings. She immerses herself in a variety or regions and cultures in order to reflect the narratives and undertones 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. He draws influence from each woodburned painting in order to create a display that is reflective of the tone of each piece. Jenny’s work is 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.
