Jenny grew up on a farm where she had close contact with nature and a variety of animals. She became especially interested in dogs, and years later a friend introduced her to Lurchers. She has now kept Lurchers and Greyhounds for over 20 years and greatly admires their agility, speed and elegance.
At the age of 40 Jenny decided on a change in her life and went back to full time education, completing a National Diploma in Ceramics followed by an HND in Fine Art at the College of west Anglia. For the last 10 years her sculptures have been exhibited in several galleries throughout the UK.
Jenny tries to capture the character and grace of the Lurcher in her sculptures. They are hand built using a combination of coil and slab building. Sometimes a coloured slip is applied before biscuit firing. Then they are coloured with metal oxides before being fired to stoneware temperature.
