Hello, and welcome to my website.
My name is Jenny Day, and I live in Essex.
I have always been passionate about art from an early age. I work mainly in oils, and sometimes use mixed media. My subjects are mostly iconic actors/musicians/celebrities, but I also really enjoy painting nudes/figureative. Somtimes I paint buildings,abstract, seascapes, whatever inspires me, or I'm commissioned to do.
I did attended art college, for a short time, where I mainly used water colour. However, The envioroment wasn't for me, so really am self taught! I became inspired by various artists, and began to engage studies using oils, which I fell in love with, despite frustrations along the way and always on an endless learning curve, I have now been able to achieve a degree of satisfaction with my own particular style which has grown organically over a period of time.
I would say I'm a perfectionist, and take great care over fine detail, and try to really capture the essence and the true likeness of the person I paint.
I work on deep edged box canvas,and take the paint all the way round the edge, so no need to frame unless you wish. Some of my paintings are available as Giclee prints to order on art paper or stretched onto canvas frame.
I am available for commissions, please go to contact page.
