Okay! Back to the interviews!!
Let’s get to know Jenny!
1. You have such a wonderful way of expressing of the feel of tropical plants. How did you come to know these hot weather plants so well?
I grow most of my inspiration now but when I was a kid, my grandmother always took me had me helping in the garden. I was drawing since I was 6 and drew plants for practice but did[n’t] really start to combine my two passions until I was in my 30s.
Me too! I learned the gardening from my grand parents in Virginia, always made art, but didn’t relate the 2 until I was in my 30s too! And we are both alumni of the same art school and transplants to Florida as well!
Jenny’s creative process starts with a combination of drawing from observation and imagination. She lets the subject inform where the line wants to go and how it wants to feel. Color is the emotion in her work. The ink is free to deepen and soften, just as color would in nature.
Jenny likes tracing paper, what material do you like to do your sketching on? Share in the comments below!
