Jenny M.L. Wantuch is an artist creating figurative art using traditional media as well as digital media. Inspired by the complexity and beauty of life and nature, and her own imagination, she enjoys exploring her inner and outer world. In her art, she seeks to find visual harmony and yet allow dynamic movement. Jenny was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. From an early age, she loved to draw, paint and create stories. Her family has for generations worked as farmers, and since the 1600’s lived in the area around Uppsala. During her childhood in Sweden, Jenny spent most of her summers at the farm. She developed a deep interest and appreciation for the beauty of nature. Early influences were her grandfather, a storyteller and draftsman, her aunt, a portrait sculptor and painter, and both her grandmothers whose talents for various crafts seemed to be endless.
Jenny moved to Northern California in 2001. Jenny is a full time artist, working from her studio in Burlingame. Jenny regularly exhibits her work in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work has private collectors in USA and in Europe.
