Jenny Braig - Spearfish, South Dakota
Jenny is a former Dubuque native now living in Spearfish, South Dakota. As a landscape painter, Braig enjoys painting landscapes of both the Midwest and the west.
Jenny Braig says, "I like putting roads and rivers in my landscapes because they serve the formal purpose of dividing the space and drawing you into a painting. Growing up on the Mississippi River gave me a romantic notion of traveling, kind of a Huckleberry Finn complex. Just seeing that river moving along constant, and changing, gave me a desire to move along too, so I took up traveling. I moved to the Black Hills in South Dakota, and spend a lot of my free time driving or hiking. Following foot paths up canyons, along creeks, to the tops of hills, driving through small towns on the plains, all with the desire to see what is around the next bend, and to keep moving.”
Braig adds: “My paintings invite you to step closer. Full of texture and color, they offer a luxurious eye feast. The work is so real and full of life you are there, experiencing the hand and eye of the artist, and the reality of paint.”
