Jennifer Banzaca 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.

Nature Inspired

The work of three ceramic sculptors, Jane Grimm, Marnia Johnston and Emil Yanos will be on display at Ruby’s Clay Studio September 5 through September 18.  Jane Grimm’s hand constructed ceramic sculptures, evocative of things seen in nature, have been shown nationally and internationally and are in the collection of Museums, corporations and many art collectors. Marnia Johnston's latest works delve further into her interest in Lazarus taxonomy, organisms that have come back from extinction.  Emil Yanos creates vessels as sculptural landscapes and uses color to highlight form and to define natural textures.
