Creative, Colourful, Abstract
I am a West Country based artist, living in North Devon where I am close to the sea and rivers in the locality. These are some of the inspirations for my paintings. Although there is generally form of some sort in my works, it is often abstracted rather than narrative.
Following retirement from full time work at North Devon College, I trained for a degree in Fine Arts and gained my Foundation Degree in Fine Arts there, (now Petroc). The full BA (Hons) was taken in Taunton, at Somerset College of Arts and Technology, under the auspices of Plymouth University.
My work uses many different media, I enjoy experimenting and think that play is an essential part in loosening up and moving forward in my work.
Jenny Smy's work is held in private collections in London, Scotland, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Australia, Germany and USA.
