Jennifer Bugnacki

Whether I am attending an art show, visiting a museum or volunteering in my daughter’s art classes, I love being around art. It’s my happy place. I love art so much that I decided to make a career out of it. I received a BA from UW-Whitewater and I am a graphic designer by trade, specializing in ads and logo design. As much as I enjoy designing, I felt the need to interact more with people and not just a computer. 8 years ago I received my manicuring license and became a nail artist. I have so much fun creating tiny designs for people’s fingernails! My passion is making people feel amazing through my art. My life is also kept extremely busy with my kids—I have 2 teenage daughters, 2 bonus daughters, and 1 furry daughter, a very energetic Maltipoo.
