After studying Art & Design at Sutton and Cheam School of Art, Jenny won a Guest Scholarship to the Royal Academy Schools while training in Medical Art at the Central Middlesex Hospital in London. I then worked in various teaching hospitals as a Medical Illustrator attached to medical and surgical units and anatomy departments. Later, Jenny went freelance and successfully expanded her illustrative work into scientific and natural history. She worked in partnership with her late husband, who was a paleontologist; together they produced numerous books, many on dinosaurs including a series for children.
She returned a decade ago to the freedom of fine art from the discipline of medical illustration and currently teaches drawing and painting both abroad and in the UK as well as being an elected Member of the Pastel Society (UK).
She has been Artist in Residence in the Harris Garden, University of Reading which resulted in an exhibition of the work produced and the publication of An Artist’s Year in the Harris Garden (Two Rivers Press 2013). This was followed by another Residency at Silchester: Life on the Dig (Two Rivers Press 2014) and an exhibition recording the last year of the excavation Silchester Town Life Project (Calleva Atrebatum).
