Jenny Morgan is an award-winning professional artist specialising in portraiture, both of people and animals. She has lived and worked in the market town of Romsey for 35 years deep in the heart of the Test Valley. The New Forest is close enabling her to fulfil her other passion, that of painting Forest Life.
Jenny’s preferred mediums are acrylic, charcoal, and pastel and she takes commissions in all subjects. If a face to face sitting is not possible through time or distance. Jenny can paint from a clear photograph. This method enables her to capture the look and character of the subject from an image especially chosen by each client. By simplifying the sitting in this way it offers the chance for anyone to own a beautiful personal piece of art work, and makes a unique gift for a person who ‘has everything’.

NEWS AND EVENTS
Romsey Art Group AUTUMN EXHIBITION
An exhibition of original artworks by the members of the Romsey Art Group. The show is held in the wonderful Grade 11 listed building on the Broadlands Estate. Beginning on Sat 21st October for 2 weeks. Admission is £1 with ample parking and refreshments are available. A very pleasant way to while away a couple of hours. The building itself is as interesting as the artworks (well almost).
An unexpected piece of publicity from the Art2Arts on-line gallery magazine. Click on the link below to see the full item. It tells more about the artist, gives insight into her life and her aspirations as well as listing a number of her original artworks.
JOHN LENNON COLLAGE
This collage of John Lennon was created with just torn newspaper and PVA glue, no paint or marks were added. After setting herself a challenge in tonal values, Jenny couldn’t stop and the piece became a force within itself. What started as an exercise became an A1 piece of art taking 6 months to complete. It became a talking point after a local journalist wrote a piece for the front page of his paper, and was then seen by a High Street gallery who asked if they could show it alongside John Lennon’s own travelling art exhibition which happened to be showing there at the time. She had offers to buy but decided that as the cheap newspaper would eventually break down, that she would keep it on her North facing wall at home. Where it still lives after 16 years.
