Jenny grew up and lives in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina.  She discovered her natural gift for composition and color following a difficult time in her life.   Her interest painting was encouraged by her mother who is a local artist herself.  She enjoys painting animals, flowers, and children and maintains a busy portrait schedule.  She employs a loose impressionistic style reminiscent of European impressionist painters.

Jenny uses a variety of techniques to create depth and movement in her landscape and floral work.  She chooses a strong color palette, bounces color throughout her paintings and creatively uses light and shadows.  Her education in floriculture serves as the backdrop for this work and her creative enthusiasm fuels the emotion for the body of her work.

Jenny is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society and Portrait Society of America.

“A painting creates an emotion just like a story does.  As long as you’re emotionally involved somehow, you’re going to keep on reading, you’re going to keep looking, keep being drawn into the story, into the painting.”

Jenny’s work has received awards in regional and national juried shows and has been included in publications such as International Artist, Southwest Art, and Artist Magazine.  She has been featured in several solo shows.  Her work is in collections across the United States
