Prefers not to depict an actual place but to work instinctively to capture a feeling for the exceptional light and natural forms of the landscape. She builds an image in several layers, scratching and over-painting until left with the remaining essence.
Her work hovers between abstraction and figuration. The paintings evolve from something seen â€“ an old lichened stone, a field pattern, the drama of high tide, a gull's wing.
Although she enjoys walking and exploring the landscape she prefers to create the work in her studio, where she feels free to experiment, build up textures and have space to explore ideas. She will sometimes work on several paintings at a time.
Jenny Woodhouse is a full-time artist. She studied at Falmouth School of Art.
