Artist - Jenny Holm

Available in the Gallery

Jenny Holm is based in Newcastle upon Tyne. After studying graphic design at the University of Northumbria, and later completing postgraduate studies in Art and Design at Leeds, Jenny moved to the South of France. The landscapes there, together with the special quality of the light, had a lasting effect on her development as a painter.

The majority of Jenny’s paintings inhabit the magical worlds of fairy-tale and myth. But there is also an autobiographical element to many of them. The narrative content of the stories within the paintings is suggested rather than imposed, allowing the observer to decide what the story is about.

The sometimes uneasy, sometimes affectionate, relationships between humans and animals often feature in her work. As she says, ‘I am interested in exploring the nature of relationships between people and also between people and animals, and how this affects the way they perceive their place in the world’.

Jenny Holm exhibits regularly throughout the UK in solo and group exhibitions.
