Jenny has always been enthusiastic about painting wildlife, but produced only a low volume of work until being introduced to soft pastels in 2014, by her daughter, Laura. She found that working in pastels came naturally to her and her painting became much freer than ever before. Now she undertakes regular camping trips to National Parks with her husband and daughter to take photos to use as references for new works.
Jenny has always had a great concern for wildlife, and completed a science degree (with a major in zoology) in her twenties. Now that her husband has retired they are focusing on returning their three acre property on the far north coast of NSW, back to rainforest to act as a haven for wildlife.
