            Jenny M.L. Wantuch (artist signature JMLW) is an oil painter with a focus on urban and rural landscapes. Inspired by the complexity and beauty of life and nature and her own imagination, she enjoys exploring and her inner and outer world.  In her art, she seeks to find visual harmony and yet allowing a dynamic movement.

She learned to be creative, a necessity in a time and place when there was only one TV-channel. 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 holds a certificate in Multimedia Art & Technology from Cañada College in Redwood City, California.
