Jenny lives in Somerset West, having recently moved from Hermanus. My aspirations to become a concert pianist were never realised and having studied IT post matric, I began a successful career in business, culminating in the creation of several start-up companies: FedEx Southern Africa, Dugmore Property Consultants, FireID (IT), Reakiri and Kuraflo (pharmaceutical), Scriptabl (IT security).
For relaxation, I attended art workshops in Provence, France as well as locally, in South Africa. Inspired through instruction by brilliant international artists such as James Bland, Tom Benjamin, Collie Whisson, Jennifer McChristian, Aine Divine and Wayne Atkins, I began actively pursuing art. I have been privileged to take lessons with talented local artists: Marie Stander, Oliver Scarlin, Christopher Reid, Shirley Howells, Willie Schlechter, Elize Bezuidenhout, Sonja Franz, Grant Woods and Willie Jacobs, whose input I have highly valued.
I am married with two adult children and five wonderful grandchildren. I am a passionate gardener fascinated with nature and paint realistically, primarily in oil and more recently, in watercolour. My beloved family and two adored cats provide inspiration, subject matter and support in my artistic pursuit.
