Jenny's artwork is intended to remind people to go out in the world passionately each day.
The vibrant colors and the inspirational words that are embedded into her paintings are conspiring to uplift our spirits and give us that little extra nudge we could all use at times to be the best version of ourselves.
Excerpt from Artist Statement...
“I absolutely embrace the fact that I’ve found an outlet to express my thoughts and visions in a way that I can share with others. Every time I pick up the brush, I feel like I’m moving and improving my ability to accurately convey what's in my head, heart and soul onto canvas and THAT is very exciting to me!"
"Using oil as her medium, Jenny manipulates vibrant colors and bold brushstrokes to enhance and exaggerate light and shadow in her paintings. Once she found her niche, her work has been emerging around the globe."
"We are not your typical gallery...we're just not and I don't think we ever will be.
"We are artists first. It's a very laid-back & fun atmosphere. People love being able to meet the artists, watch as the magic happens and buy directly from us.
"Clients can watch a work in progress and have been known to enjoy a glass of wine while overseeing the finishing touches of the newest addition to their collection.
"We love it this way. It's welcoming, unpretentious, personable and truly unique...people feel comfortable here and we are proud to offer this experience."
Yes! I would love to know about studio clearance sales and other fun happenings!

"Last year's Fall Jonquil Festival was the first festival I've ever worked. It was very exciting for me. This festival was so much fun, the crowd was wonderful and everyone was so nice.”

excerpt from Jill Kettles, Scribbles Studio & DeFoor Centre
(...THANK YOU, Jill)
..."Jenny is one of those artists whose work explodes off the canvas with her color and imagery. The musical instruments are still resonating from their last chords. Her reds and oranges are powerful the textures are splattered about. Her high energy is evident throughout each image. This will be a great and vibrant way to kick off the season."
