Jenny is a Christian, very conscious of an ongoing creative process between self, creation and creator. She seeks to capture a moment of wonder between known substance and spiritual dimension – a meeting which creates a new field of energy and revelation.
Training at the Slade followed by 10 years in Nigeria gave her the ability to combine technique with spontaneity. Further teaching in Sheffield then retraining as an Art Therapist led to work in special education eventually tutoring on the Sheffield Uni Art Therapy course. Therapy experiences brought a depth of emotion into her painting; she eventually progressed to self employment as an Artist/Art Therapist
Since 97 she has mounted at least 1 solo exhibition a year e.g. Southwell Minster, Canterbury Cathedral Hall, many churches, Germany, Renishaw, Cromford Mill, Sheff Uni. Group exhibitions include Festivals in Wirksworth, Buxton and Melbourne, Knaresborough, Scarboro, Llangollen and Sweden. She also opens her studio annually as part of Sheffield OpenUp and Derbyshire Open Arts.
Jenny’s studio/gallery is in the Dark Peak at the foot of Win Hill near Ladybower reservoir. Please phone to arrange visits, and commissions, and check website for current details.
