Artist Bio:

Jenny is a textile artist and tutor living and working in Oswestry. Her work is inspired by the landscape of Shropshire, it’s colours, patterns textures and shapes. Rolling landscapes, clumps of trees perched on hills, ploughed fields and the changing of the seasons. Through her textile art she aims to bring out feelings about what is around her rather than  being a true representation of any one place.

She works predominately in batik(hot wax resist) on tissue paper and on fabric, often combining it with machine embroidery adding a drawn element to her work.

Jenny offers talks, courses and workshops in Shropshire and around the UK.

She is  a member of The Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Crafts, The Embroiderers Guild and The Batik Guild
