Jenni’s work is instantly recognisable thanks to its dreamlike qualities. By using light brushstrokes, deep colours and distortion of scale Jenni creates small intimate worlds where people are little more than a centimetre high and dominated by beautiful creatures and motifs that flutter and turn on the breeze: lanterns, moths, birds and dragonflies.
Jenni’s ideas come from working in a reportage style, armed with a sketchbook she takes real people and situations filtering them through her imaginings and daydreams ending up with images that suggest there is something much bigger ‘out there’ than our perceived reality. Working in acrylic on panel which has been under painted in order to intensify the colours, she slowly builds up the layers, scaling and repeating the leitmotifs until they evoke a sense of wonder and magic.
Graduating from Loughborough University with a degree in illustration in 2006, Jenni now works full time from her studio in Norwich and has built up a foundation of clients both nationally and internationally.
