Jenni Murphy

Instantly recognisable  thanks to its dreamlike qualities  Jenni’s light, harmonious brushstrokes, deep colours and distortion of scale work to create intimate worlds where people are little more than a centimetre high. Dominated  by beautiful creatures and motifs or the landscape itself, the figures are full of movement and emotion. They are fun, gentle and never alone, often accompanied by a little dog.

Having never lost the sense of wonder and discovery you have as a child  Jenni’s works come about by working in a reportage  style. Venturing out, sketchbook in hand, she draws real people and situations filtering them through her imaginings and daydreams ending up with images that suggest there is something much bigger ’out there’ than our perceived reality.

Working in acrylic  on panel  that has been under painted in order to intensify the colours, she slowly builds up the layers, until they evoke a sense of wonder and magic. Collier and Dobson Limited  publish Jenni’’s top selling limited editions. Her clients include Woodmansterne Greetings Cards, The Art Group and a host of national and international private collectors.
