Who Am I?
Creating colourful abstract pieces of art is Jenny Smy's passion.
"I am a West Country artist living in Barnstaple, North Devon and I have been painting for the last 35 years or so in Acrylics, Pastel and oils."
Jenny Smy started her training as a mature student with a delight in 20th century art and gained her BA (Hons) Fine Art in 2011, specialising in painting.
She draws her inspiration from the area in which she lives and the proximity of the sea.
Jenny Smy's specialties include in acrylic paintings, oils and mixed media original artworks.
" Colour is my passion. I usually try to portray what I see around me, in the landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes, of this beautiful part of this country. Living in Devon, I am lucky that I only have to walk a mile or so to get to water. There are several rivers nearby and the local marshes and estuary often provide the inspiration and motivation for my work. I am drawn to the abstractions in nature and they play a large part in my work, sometimes without my being conscious of their presence until nearing completion of the piece."
Jenny Smy's work is held in private collections in London, Scotland, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Australia, Germany and USA.
