Jennifer Warren Bio:

“I am a Chicago-based oil painter making work that explores themes around nature, beauty, and the Black body. As a largely self-taught artist, my practice reflects my passion for incorporating new ideas and techniques that aim to convey the lived Black experience through everyday intimate and meditative moments. My work has been exhibited at the Martin Gallery, Chicago, IL; the Sidney Larson Gallery, Columbia, MO; and in Saatchi Art Virtual exhibition. I graduated with a BA in International Business and minor in Visual Arts from Eckerd College and attended a Painting and Drawing program at the Leo Marchutz School of Fine Art in France. I currently live and work in Chicago, IL.”
