Jenny Phillips is a San Francisco based artist. She uses paper, wax, watercolor, oil, graphite and other media to explore the interplay between linework, surface, and texture. Influenced by shapes and patterns found in nature and urban environments, she creates subtle and meditative artworks through the use of rhythmic gestures and repetitive patterns. She strives for a quiet and complex beauty, balancing simplicity of expression which rich sensory qualities.

Her background is in graphic design and fine art. She studied printmaking and painting at California College of Arts, San Francisco Art Institute, Kala Art Institute, and received the Woodrow Deckman Studio Art Scholarship at Denison University.

Jenny Phillips has been painting and printmaking for 30 years. She grew up in Eastern Long Island, Majorca and New York City. Having spent her formative years working at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the combination of theater, dance and music continues to inform her work. A graphic designer by trade, Jenny worked with a variety of design firms before moving to San Francisco, where she launched her own studio. Her work has been exhibited in the Bay Area and throughout the United States. She works and lives in Bernal Heights with her husband and two children.
