Jenny paints in oils, mixed media and acrylics, enjoying the materiality of the paint. Many paintings have their beginning in things seen as she walks along the cliffs or beaches near her home in Dorset or in West Cornwall. Jenny loves wide open spaces and skies, the elemental in landscape and seascape; but also the details in small objects, stones and shells, leaves and lichens.
A sketchbook is an important tool for recording ideas, drawings, colour and texture notes, the play of light. These become the starting point for a piece of work, but the delight comes in the chance marks and qualities of the surface of the painting as she works back in the studio.
A graduate of the highly regarded Design Crafts course at Hereford College of Art, Anita has been making decorative art and jewellery for over 15 years.
Her art work draws on the decorative fragmented surfaces of ancient jewellery, reliquaries, frescoes and tiled surfaces. Museums and Art Galleries fueled her obsession from an early age. As a child she enjoyed piecing things together in her mind and learnt to appreciate highly decorative, elaborate surfaces that had been time worn and broken.
This has shaped the way Anita designs. She prefers abstractions and incomplete images and textures and although her work has no direct narrative it does have a language of pattern, texture and colour. Anita likes to capture the idea of buried treasure in her work, fragments of artefacts that were part of something bigger, which now no longer exist.
My eyes, my skin, my mind and nature are my inspiration.
My eyes, my skin, my mind and nature are my inspiration.
All works are abstractions in a very pure and often square-framed form.
These are metaphors of my relationship with mother earth and mankind.
Our society is organized to label and to frame lives. So I subscribe my motto:
Jump the lines and cross the borders.
I’m using different kinds of materials, like paper, canvas, wood, plywood and waste as subsoils for my acrylic paintings.
Sometimes I paint directly, often in accumulating layers, so you’ve to guess what’s underneath.
That’s the struggle to be on good terms with contemporary life.
It’s difficult to celebrate life when simultaneous you’re perceiving the evolving cruelty.
So I’m painting to survive indifference.

I produce vibrant, textured, tactile pieces using unusual materials to add dimension and intrigue to my work.
Yes I do encourgae you to run your fingers over my work - although my art looks delicate it is very robust. ( and can be cleaned) Experiencing the texture is part of the appreciation process!
I love vibrant and unusual colour combinations which make my heart sing, sounds romantic but Im sure you know what I mean.
To me art is to brighten and enlighten, to make you catch a moment to ponder. Above all I hope my work is seen as beautiful. The dimensions and shadows of the depth and texture captures a different light from different angles around the room giving you a different vision every time.
