Jenny works mainly working with oil paint on canvas. Her work is focused on using abstraction to depict the beauty of the imperfect and the impermanence of life and nature. Landscapes, river and water scenes, still lives and portraits all represent the balance between beauty and decay, the transformation inherent in nature, in all of us.
Long influenced by Japanese art and, in particular, the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-sabi, Cowderoy delights in the beauty of the old over the new, of autumn over summer, in real life, in true character and unpolished reality. Her process involves repeated manipulation and transformation of the works until they are beautifully imperfect.
Jenny currently lives and works in Bath.
