Biography


 
Jenny is a native of Northern California who studied studio art at Brunel University, London England. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Design Studies from San Francisco State University and studied painting with some of the best master painters in California.  Aside from making art, Jenny also teaches Fine Art to elementary school age children and youth with special needs.   She is a member of the Women’s Caucus for Art, The American Impressionist Society, The El Dorado Hills Art Association and The California Art Club. 
 
"Although I enjoy painting in the studio,  I gravitate towards landscape painting and I have fallen in love with painting en plein air.  My work is expressionistic and painterly in style that is based on American Impressionist techniques.  Like many Impressionist painters, paint is placed in layers on top of the other producing a vibrating effect. My brush stokes are bold and I try to be direct in application no "Dabby dab" as one of my teachers used to say. The need to replicate the exactness of my subjects or scenes is always secondary to the expression of subject matter.   Some artists who have influenced my work include the great masters from the past such as: Joaquin Sorolla, John Singer Sargent, Edgar Payne, William Wendt and Richard Diebenkorn.  There is always something for me to learn, and I continue to explore my medium studying with other California artists in Sacramento, practicing my craft and taking workshops from fellow artists whenever they are available."
