Using her drawing skills Jenny works out in the landscape to capture the detail she needs to create her plates. Taking her drawings back to her incredible print studio in Ironbridge (that she designed) which is situated right next to the river Seven, she then has a wide range of printmaking mediums she can choose from.
Jenny loves aquatint etchings and she particularity enjoys making large scale etchings using steel and nitric acid, but she is more than happy to work using aluminium, zinc and copper. She also has a dark room where she can create photo-etchings using her large UV exposure unit. Photopolymer is also a love of hers as well as spit-bite, mezzotint, dry-point, lino, reduction, straight lino, straight woodblock, Japanese woodblock, reduction woodblock, collagraph and letterpress – and I do not think we included everything in there!
Jenny is a passionate printmaker who loves what she does for a living, she has made so much work already but continues to have new inspiration every day driving her forward to make more and more work.
Jenny has also designed and had her workshop make the following items, originally for her own use but also to sell to other printmakers.
Spindle rollers, hand rollers, hotplates, registration pins and runners for the printing press to make it easy for people to print all different thicknesses of plates on the printing presses that we have been selling for over 40 years.
