Jenni is a landscape artist specialising in expressive scenes of Ireland and Scotland.
She grew up on the North Sea Coast in the Scottish Borders, relocating to County Down in 2006 where she built up a portfolio of commission work alongside a career in events & business management.
In 2015, Jenni became a full-time artist and spent a couple of years developing her style and building a customer base in the local art & craft scene. She became known for printmaking and animal portraiture before deciding to concentrate on her signature landscapes. She continues to exhibit and sell her work at a monthly artisan market in Holywood with North Down Craft Collective.
As well as stocking outlets in Northern Ireland, Jenni also sells prints and cards of her work on etsy.com. She founded Etsy Sellers NI and organised Northern Ireland’s first ever Etsy Made Local market in 2018, bringing the public face to face with their favourite online Etsy.com sellers.
Jenni has exhibited her work as part of group exhibitions and undertook her first solo exhibition at WWT Castle Espie in 2019, creating over 30 works to fill both galleries. She enjoyed a year of successful sales in the wake of that event and is creating a totally new body of work for the coming year.
2020 is an exciting year, soon to yield a move to new premises and a second solo exhibition of totally new work.
The 2020 exhibition is titled Silver Light, opening 20th May 2020 at Natural Room Emporium. See social media for details.
The exhibition will use Jenni's preferred medium of acrylic paints, introducing oxidised aluminium panels as the base material. The aluminium lends a luminosity to this work and this ties in with the moody, late-in-the-day land and seascapes that have cemented themselves as Jenni's favourite subject moving forward.
The future holds residency work around Ireland and further exhibitions, please follow social media channels for more developments.
Jenni is interested in hearing from curators to place work from Summer 2020 onwards, if your facility or gallery is interested in presenting new landscape work please get in touch.
