Jenny  Sutton

Jenny read Fine Art at Reading University and studied at the Hornsey College of Art. After this, she worked for various London design consultancies and in local government as a graphic and exhibition designer. Jenny worked as a graphic designer and typographer before returning to painting in the 1980s. Jenny has been exhibiting since 1980 regularly at the Royal West of England Academy, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, the Society of Women Artists, and at Not the Royal Academy (Llewellyn Alexander Gallery, London), as well as private galleries in London and the South. She has exhibited widely including at the Royal West of England Academy, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, the Society of Women Artists, and the Affordable Art Fair, as well as many private galleries in London and the South. Solo exhibitions include at the Winchester Theatre Royal and the Salisbury Playhouse. She was the winner of the Salisbury Small Pictures Exhibition in 2002. Jenny was elected an associate of the RBSA in 2005 and a full member in 2007. She currently is involved in exploring colour and light in still life subjects, for which she has acquired a large collection of objects, from Georgian teacups to flowerpots, baskets, quails' eggs, ribbons and even meringues. Jenny works in oil and specialises in still life. She also paints landscapes and portraits, with a particular fondness for weathered buildings and patterns of light in gardens. Jenny has always put painting at the top of her life priorities, and after setting up and running for eight years a successful gallery in Hampshire where she lives, now paints full time in her Lymington studio.
