Jenny studied portraiture at the Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea where she was tutored by leading members of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. She received a Special Commendation for her diploma and was awarded the Heatherleys Portrait Diploma Prize.
She says “For me portraiture is a wonderfully collaborative process as sitter and artist engage with each other throughout the creation of the painting. It is always a challenge for me to capture what is particular about an individual whilst also conveying something of what is common to humanity”.
Jenny works from her Oxfordshire studio where she undertakes portrait commissions. To view more of her work and to contact her please visit her website www.jennyfay.co.uk
