Jenna Roby is a self-taught artist who is pursuing the eccentric life of an artist. Her grandmother, a professional painter with a talent for realism and oil paint, first influenced her to begin drawing as a hobby, which progressed into a full on lifestyle. Jenna paints with watercolor, oil, and spray paint, and creates realism portraits in pencil or pen. As an airbrush artist at a custom motorcycle shop, she began working on bikes and helmets to produce creative, realistic designs. Today she is a local Seattle freelance artist and hairstylist with a love of tea and large dogs.
