Artist's statement:

Born in West Africa in 1978, Jenny Fay traces her love of colour back to childhood memories of vibrant fabrics and tropical light.  She began painting in her thirties following a career in law.
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 in 2014.
She says "For me portraiture is a wonderfully collaborative process as sitter and artist engage with each other throughout the creation of the painting.  I always aspire to capture what is particular about an individual whilst also conveying something of what is common to humanity".
Although portraiture is her principal interest, Jenny also enjoys exploring colour and composition in pieces which are a response to the human form or to the rhythms and patterns found in nature.
Jenny works from her Oxfordshire studio where she undertakes portrait commissions.  She welcomes enquiries about her work and can be contacted via her website where you can also see more of her art portfolio.
