Artist statement

During the early years, up to her mid twenties, Jennie mostly painted realistic watercolor. A depicting way of work to advance in the technical grounds so that she later on would be able to find her own free artistic voice. 


Then, the transformation years started and the watercolor motifs moved on to magical realism - a new dimension was added. A couple of years later mixed media and the abstracts got added to Jennies repetoar. 


The past years Jennie has alterned between magic realism watercolor and abstract mixed media, often emerged in both playful and serious collages.


Jennie works with contrasts and diversity - dream world v.s reality, gender and class. She describes her artprocess as "deconstructing and recreating reality through art". Wanting to make life more harmonious.
