Jenny has spent the last 30 years since graduating from Painting/Printmaking as a professional painter. She was one of the youngest ever members to be elected to the New English Art Club in 1983 and the Royal Watercolour Society in 1984, and has shown with them ever since.
Her work has been shown widely in most major galleries in London and the provinces as well as in America, Malta, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo.


Over her career so far Jenny has been mostly recognised for her glowing and highly original sense of colour. Her forbears were immersed in theatre and film and her use and manipulation of perspective reflects this, as she enjoys guiding the viewer through her work by her placing of layers of “stage set” space and colour.


Her subject matter is derived from her travels at home and abroad and her observations of human nature. While the viewer might see an interior of landscape, the objects and their placement often stand for situations, conversations and relationships she has observed.


Jenny’s book Adventurous Watercolours was published in 2011 and she was an expert judge on Channel Four’s popular Watercolour Challenge throughout 2000 and 2001. Her work sits in many public and private collections worldwide, including that of HRH The Queen and the Maltese National Collection.
Jenny works comfortably in watercolour, oil and acrylic and has completed a number of corporate commissions as well as developing her work in private galleries throughout her career.
