Jenny specialises in the art of collagraph printing on paper. Her prints are produced from collaged plates, which she enjoys making, using many common household items, to produce a highly textured surface, resulting in an embossed print.
The method produces unpredictable results and enables her to create dynamic, textural, vibrant prints.
Spending much of her time in Wigtownshire, Dumfries and Galloway, Jenny’s work explores that region’s diverse coastal landscape. She believes collagraphs perfectly lend themselves to the recreation of the rich textures and constantly changing colours so characteristic of the area.
