Jenny Semmens

Jennifer was born in Cornwall in 1964, and studied at Falmouth College of Art and the Gloucestershire College of Art and Technology in Cheltenham before returning to West Penwith to continue painting professionally.

Jennifer is known for her semi-abstract compositions that feature architecture. They are fused with a sense of place, but also give a feeling of space and isolation. Painting in subtle earthy colours on rough textured surfaces of her own making, her paintings are like archaeological finds, intriguing shapes and forms exposed like shards from a rough terrain

Jennifer is a Member of the Penwith Society of Arts and exhibits both at the Penwith Gallery and at The New Craftsman Gallery in St.Ives.  She has exhibited extensively throughout the West Country, as well as past exhibitions in London, Germany, France and The Netherlands. Her work is also included in the Truro School Collection and the George Dannatt Trust.
