Jenni was brought up in Cornwall and made her way to Bath to study Fine Art BA Hons. From there she went on to train as a Secondary School Art Teacher.
Jenni's main focus for her artwork is line and pattern. Which shows itself in a variety of ways. Traditionally Jenni has focused on building a collection of locations based on her childhood, home and travels. Printmaking features in a big way. Designs start as drawings and develop as layers and patterns are added. These are then transferred onto lino where Jenni can spend weeks to cut out the most intricate of designs. She was heavily influenced by Cornish naive artists growing up and she finds comfort in these flowing lines and a decisive nature as the image/lino develops.
More recently Jenni has explored pattern and line in a wider sense sometimes incorporating her love of Bristol and sometimes playing with her love of traditions and maps through a sense of place and home.
