    Jennifer Packer is a painter and a 2012 MFA graduate of the Yale University School of Art, where in 2011 she received the Gamblin Paint Prize and a Robert Schoelkopf Memorial Traveling Fellowship. Packer uses portraiture to explore deeply personal experiences as well as the grand, convoluted narratives of art history. Embracing dissonance, she creates paintings that contradict themselves, depicting sorrow and exhaustion in vibrant, attractive color and lovingly painting scenes of escalating discord. Packer was born in Philadelphia in 1984 and received her BFA from the Tyler University School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia in 2007.
