“My work explores mystery, transformation and the sacred.
Existing between a waking and dream state, the archetypal anthropomorphic creatures that are a part of my visual language attempt to illuminate the invisible threads of connection between sentient beings and the environments they inhabit. Depictions of Flora and Fauna integrated with the human and animal characters serve as metaphor for the connections between all living things; Darkness and light are at constant play and I try to maintain a tender balance between the two.
“My painting process is largely intuitive and while I feel that my work is a continuing
story, with each new body of paintings informing the next and so on and on; The pathway from the beginning of a piece to its completion only unfolds as I work, I’m very much interested in where the vision takes me and engage in an alternating major and minor role in dictating that direction, sharing the distinction, of navigator, with the spirit of the piece itself.”
Jennybird’s work has been exhibited broadly in the US and Europe and is in private collections worldwide.
