Jenny Urquhart will be showing her original paintings here during the North Bristol Art Trail 2020


Jenny’s paintings are usually bold and contemporary and reflect her life-long love affair with the coastline of England, particularly in the South West. Largely working from memory, she experiments with acrylic, collage, ink and digital mediums to create contemporary and colourful images of her favourite places!

Jenny comes from a scientific background and originally studied Biology at Oxford University. She then went on to teach secondary science for ten years. In 2011, Jenny gave it all up and decided to follow her dream of being an artist. She started painting from her kitchen table, but now has a studio in her loft. “The Bristol is a vibrant city, heaving with culture and worth exploring. My aim is for my paintings to bring just a little bit of that into people’s homes!…I love what I do and I hope that comes across in my pictures..”

Jenny has produced a lovely colouring book of many of her artworks, available at Room 212 for £10. We also have her cards and coasters

Jenny was selected for the Gloucester Road Art Banners Project her artwork Gloucester Road Central can be seen on the central part of Gloucester Road and a print is available to buy Here
