Jennifer Banzaca is an artist and designer living in San Francisco.
Jennifer grew up on the east coast, spending her formative years in New England. After earning a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1991, she went on to live in San Francisco and New York working as a Designer and Art Director for book publishing and animation. Rediscovering a love of painting in 2004, she resumed her education studying at the Art Students League and the New York Academy of art. Relocating back to San Francisco in 2015 has allowed her to pursue a studio practice on a deeper level. She enjoys creating work that brings her past design influences and color sensibility from working in children's entertainment to her work.
Currently represented by Art Attack in San Francisco.
