Jenny Sutton is an established artist with a strong following who combines a subtle and harmonious palette with honed drawing skills. Her subject matter ranges from her personal collection of vintage china and glassware, to fresh flowers, country landscapes and old forgotten buildings. In capturing the light through bold brushwork and use of colour, she manages to convey great depth as well as transient beauty.
Jenny read Fine Art at Reading University, and has been exhibiting since 1979 regularly at the Royal West of England Academy, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, The Society of Women Artists, the Singer Friedlander / Sunday Times Watercolour Competition and the Laing Landscape Competition. She has also shown her work at the London and Bristol Affordable Art Fairs and many private galleries in London and the South.
She was First Prize Winner in The Salisbury Small Pictures Exhibition 2002, and was elected an Associate of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 2005. She became a full member in 2007 and her work is now in their permanent collection.
