Jenny Wheatley, NEAC, RWS
Jenny Wheatley is a member of the New English Art Club and the Royal Watercolour Society. She trained at the West Surrey College of Art & Design where she received a B.A. in Fine Art & Printmaking. Renowned for her exciting, colourful and highly original watercolours and mixed-media paintings, Jenny covers a variety of subjects including buildings, still life and landscapes.
Jenny's work encompasses the emotive use of colour to convey her personal response to places and times of importance in her life. Her work emanates from careful drawing and observation along with the collecting of objects and ideas in situ. She takes her sketchbook everywhere and makes drawn and written observations of places, people, mood and atmosphere. Back in the studio she will combine her learnt knowledge of place and things to make composite paintings in oil, watercolour or acrylic, depending on the mood and mark she is trying to attain. The final images will hopefully convey her emotive response to the landscape, relationships, ideas and environment using a play of colour and composition to guide the viewer.
