Jenny gained a diploma in distinction at Carrington Polytechnic in Auckland, New Zealand, studying Craft and Design. She set up her first kiln studio at home after receiving a QEII Arts Council New Artist Grant. Fusing glass she slumps, cuts and layers it – in her now renowned original designs.
Building on her glass work using mixed media materials, she has taken her art outdoors, creating larger garden sculptures and installations. When asked about the inspiration of her work, Jenny says “NZ is not only a country of natural beauty, but it is a country rich in cultural diversity. These are constant reference points in my work, which is created with a Pacific inspiration, for a modern setting.”
