Artist Biography: Jenna Lash

Jenna Lash is fascinated by currency. Her interest is in diverse cultures and how their identities are represented in their money. She creatively conveys those symbolic representations of financial systems through the prism of her work.

Lash’s unique contemporary version of pointillism is reminiscent of Seurat's dots of color, with an astute awareness of today’s world. The National Art Museum and Gallery Guide, and The Art Now/New York Gallery Guide, have both used illustrations of her work in their magazines.

Lash has won many awards for her work, among which is a first prize at the Westchester Beaux Arts Finale. She has had ten solo shows in New York during the last fifteen years, and has been in more than thirty juried group exhibitions.

She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Connecticut and a Master of Arts Degree from New York University. She has also studied at the American Academy in Rome. Her work is held in private collections in the United States and in Europe.
