Jenna Youngwood explores the intimacy and material challenge of translating small-scale ink and marker sketches into paintings. Combining elements of nature, landscape, and fantasy, her paintings mimic as well as transform parts of drawings into new compositions that can stand on their own as works of art. Youngwood received her BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2016 and has been exhibiting in group shows nationally. She is represented by The Alice Wilds and had her first solo show with the gallery in 2019. Youngwood lives and works in Milwaukee, WI.
