About Jennifer Hollack:
Jennifer Hollack was born in Dallas, TX in 1967 and was raised there until she went to study at the University of Arizona, where she graduated with a BA in Architecture in 1991.
If she had her way, Jennifer Hollack would live in a little house made of stones on the sun drenched Greek islands of Paros. She would spend her days barefoot down by the sea, painting people and boats, and at night, would eat fish and dance with the old men and women of the village. This love affair with far away places took root while studying architecture and fine art at the Aegean Center for the Arts on Paros. Jennifer’s love of exotic cultures and examination of the “history” of a people have enriched her work and ideas with an expressive fascination for color, texture, pattern, and form.
“All my life, I’ve been taught to do my best,” Jennifer explains. “When I was in Venice, I saw the most beautiful piece of glass art. I took all my spending money and invested it on that vase – it was my big splurge. Today, when I paint a piece of art, I think to myself, this is someone’s big splurge. With that in mind, I try to create a piece that is beyond my expectations – I want it to be the best piece that I can paint.”
