Jenny started her art career as a Graphic Designer graduating from Qld College of Art with a Diploma of Art and a Bachelor Degree in Art. She worked within the printing industry as a graphic designer, creating marketing and branding material for a wide variety clients, taking each design from concept through to production.
Her knowledge of the graphic design industry took her into a teaching role and she worked for 10 years in the TAFE sector first as a lecturer then as a department head. During this time she was responsible for many end of year student exhibitions, planning and curating each one.
After leaving her teaching career she took the skills from her past life into her new life of exhibiting her own art, providing private art tuition as a workshop presenter and adjudicating for Art competitions.
Her graphic design background influences her style of rendering, with the use of bold graphic images and colours. She uses her design skills to interpret the content of photographs, and simplify the images and colours to create her work.
In the next chapter, driven by the need to put her children first, she found work back in the education arena as a part-time Art Teacher aide within the private school sector. Jenny was responsible for developing conceptual themes, planning, curating, marketing and the preparation of over 2000 artworks for the yearly school art exhibitions. She also designed, built and painted musical sets for the school drama program.
After a 5 year hiatus from exhibiting she returned to teaching privately and exhibiting through competitions, local community art galleries and commercial galleries.
She has exhibited in various art galleries and shows in Brisbane, Mt Tamborine and Cairns and her work hangs in private collections in Europe, New York and throughout Australia.
