Painter and filmmaker

Working as a photographer for many years, then studying Graphic Design and Illustration at Norwich School of Art, Jennie paintings have a strong graphic style with diverse influences feeding her work.

‘This abstract series of paintings is inspired by the textures, symbols, shapes and light of the urban landscape. I am interested in balancing contrast, shape and colour in my work. Working in oils allows me to work with a slow drying material that can be layered, rubbed away and scratched into. The finished look can in some cases resemble an etching. I use thick ply board rather than canvas for my paintings because its heavy-duty surface allows expressive freedom and durability when marking the surface in this way. The finished paintings are thick and heavy taking on a more sculptural quality which I like.’
