Jennifer Gennari

“Doing this work is a very big challenge. It requires a lot of active thought and a solid road map to what you want your painting to look like in the end. It’s through these lessons, both new and repetitive that we all will continue to grow, and I can’t tell you how exciting that is. I’m honored to be assisting you all in your work and overwhelmed by your dedication.” – Jennifer Gennari

About Jennifer Gennari

Jennifer Gennari is a classically trained artist. She graduated in 2005 from Ringling College of Art and Design and in 2008 left for Italy to study at the Florence Academy of Art where she spent three years abroad studying classical realism under Daniel Graves.

Jennifer has been painting animals since 2014 and is driven by a deeply rooted passion to elevate and legitimize the life we have with them. Jennifer is one of the first contemporary artists to focus entirely on animal painting, and the first to spotlight the Alla Prima method centered on capturing animals with the life, drama, and integrity of a traditional human portrait. There is a breath of individual emotion and personality inside each portrait as if their soul was captured within the paint. Her work is the definition of Labor of Love.

Jennifer has also written a book on drawing the human figure, has hosted an online class through Craftsy that instructs beginners on the techniques used in creating a traditional portrait in charcoal, and is presently teaching an ever growing class on animal portraiture through Drawing America.

Jennifer’s work has been used in television shows and movies, and has received multiple awards and honors.
