About the Artist
Jennie trained in printmaking at Croydon College and Wimbledon School of Art.
An interest in architecture and a fascination with the way space is taken up in our cities inspires her work: she is drawn to the sharp contrasts between old and new, graceful curves and hard angular lines, as well as the patterns, repetition and colours found in the built environment.
She uses the reduction linocut method to achieve her layers of bold colour: the block is printed in one colour, more is cut away and printed on top in the next colour and so on until the finished print is achieved. All of this done by hand with the printing taking place on her Victorian Albion press. With the reduction block there is no going back and the whole edition must be finished at the same time.
She was commissioned to make a print for ITV’s 60 Minute Makeover and appeared in an episode. Paperchase have sold her cards, and previously a range of her prints have sold through John Lewis.
Jennie’s work has been purchased by the London Councils for their offices in Southwark Street, The Royal Brompton Hospital, and Johnson Matthey.
She is a member of Greenwich Printmakers, Southbank Printmakers, the Printmakers Council and the Fountain Gallery at Hampton Court.
