Tena Jerger is a Tyler-based painter, who often works with acrylics paints in heavy textures. Her focus shifts between portraiture and abstract, letting both painting types borrow from the other; always using bold colors and exaggerated features.

In eighth grade, Tena realized that she would dedicate very much of her life to art, and has spent the years since actualizing the reality she had seen for herself in her mind. She takes inspiration from art that exists everywhere, her style shows the independent exploration that comes with her years of experience. Her paintings reflect her imagination, and perseverance: two things that are difficult to miss when encountering her person, or any of her creations.

After graduating from University of North Texas and working for over 20 years in the corporate world, I have recently set up my own creative studio.
