Jennifer is an artist living and working in rural Shropshire, where the inspiration for my work is fuelled by the county’s landscape and the flora and fauna that inhabit it.
Her work focuses on capturing the character and spirit of an animal through the mediums of pen, ink and watercolour. She prefers to use handmade paper, as its textured, earthy surface suits the nature and feel of her work. It also acts as the perfect base for both her choices of mediums; the loose, unpredictable watercolour and the tight, scratchy lines of pen and ink. She loves creating blotches and daubs of colourful watercolour, and then over the top of this adding detail with layers and lines of feathers or fur.
