Jennifer Polnaszek came to Texas from rural Wisconsin where she worked in the medical profession as both a physician assistant and a registered nurse. She studied art at the Uni-versity of New Mexico, the University of Wisconsin in Eau Claire, and has continued her studies at The Southwest School of Art and the Coppini Academy
of Fine Arts. Polnaszek works in oils, watercolors, graphite and printmaking. Particularly drawn to the human form and to documenting the human experience through her work, she is influenced by both her love of biological science and anthropology.
In addition to participating in numerous exhibitions in the San Antonio-Austin area, Polnaszek received awards for watercolor at the Coppini Academy of Fine Arts and for oil at TheSouthwest School of Art.
