About

Jenny Jansen (b. Tacoma, WA 1975), was raised in Northeast Ohio and Chautauqua, New York. She studied painting and drawing at the Columbus College of Art and Design and Kent State University (BA). Her works have been in several museum and gallery shows in Ohio, Vancouver BC and Washington State. Her abstract landscape paintings draw from both inner human landscapes and the horizon lines out along the sea. Her work plays with the struggles of our interpersonal and social lives contrasted and married to the physical landscapes around us.
