Although she lives ion the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire, the sea is in Jenny’s blood and coastal scenes remain the primary inspiration for her painting.
Her works tell a story and achieve a full sense of a place. Each one is born from her strong visual and emotional memories, where her associated thoughts are as integral to the painting’s creation as are the shapes, colours and light that she paints.
