I was born in 1958 in New York, New York. My grandfather was a painter and instructor at the Art Students League in NYC. My father was a drafting engineer and my mother, brother and sister were all gifted in the area of painting and drawing, much more so than I. I was given many opportunities to explore and develop my creativity. I attended the High School of Art and Design and was employed as a freelance graphics artist during my college years in Maine. I have a Bachelor of Music Degree in Flute Performance from the University of Southern Maine and I have studied flute and piano in Switzerland with renowned musicians Marianne Stucki and Art Lande.
I am currently a working musician and composer and painter. I enjoy nature and that is why I love residing in West Virginia, my adopted home of the past 17 years. I have lived in Switzerland and Maine and I love visiting the west coast of the USA. I have two adult children and three cats. I am deeply indebted to painter Sharon Goodman for her love and encouragement in my endeavor to paint the world as I see it. My husband, bassist Nathan Wilson is a member of the Squonk Opera, a Pittsburgh performance troupe. We make our living together as musicians. My full time job is pianist/composer and manager for my trio, the Jenny Wilson Trio. www.jennyandnathan.com
