Jenna Goldberg is an artist that primarily works making furniture and jewelry boxes. Recently, she attended the 20th Annual Furniture Society Conference in Philadelphia, where she headed up a “surface design area” that opened designers’ minds to new ideas and concepts they might not have considered before. Furniture makers from around the world came to “The City Of Brotherly Love” to experiment with different finishing techniques and paints – which, thanks to Jenna, included introducing them to the vibrant hues found in Rosco’s range of Supersaturated scenic paints.
Armed with brushes and the full spectrum of Rosco Supersaturated paints, Jenna hosted several demonstrations on creating textures, glazes and gradations. The participants were given a chance to get hands-on with the paints and experiment with the ultra-flat finish, easy-mixabilty and stunning colors found in the Supersaturated range.
Jenna has been a long time user of Rosco paints in her work. She first learned about them in graduate school during a residency at San Diego State University’s School of Art + Design studying with Wendy Maruyama. “I’ve always been attracted to the brilliance of the colors as well as the concentrated thickness of the Supersaturated paints.”
During her many workshops at various craft and design schools over the years, Jenna has taught her students how to incorporate painting and imagery into their furniture forms. While teaching these workshops, she has always made sure to introduce our Supersaturated palette of colors to the class.
Be sure to visit the SuperSaturated web page to learn more about the paints Jenna used to create the exquisite furniture you saw in this post. Then take some time and explore her Jenna Goldberg Studio website to see more of her work and experience her fine-art furniture creations.
