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.
