Dubuque native, Jennifer Braig, presented paintings that express her love of the landscape she remembered growing up. Her style is balanced yet energetic with unexpected compositions and thick impasto. She uses intense, eye-catching colors to draw the viewer in for a closer look to discover rhythmic brush strokes enlivening the canvas.
Ms. Braig cultivated her love of working in oil at Loras College where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Art, with minors in Art History and English in 1992 and studied under Tom Jewell-Vitale. Ms. Braig currently lives in Spearfish, South Dakota with her husband and two daughters.
Her smaller works had been displayed locally, so the Museum was excited to showcase Ms. Braig’s large-scale works that reach up to six feet wide.
