Jenni Murphy

Jenni Murphy is a British artist and illustrator, based in Norwich. When she was 5, she drew a picture of a giant rabbit at school. Her teacher told her parents, ‘Your child is going to be an artist!” Amazingly, the teacher was right. Her work has an distinctive dreamlike quality. Jenni uses deep vivid colours, but with light brushstrokes for contrast. Jenni likes to experiment with perspective and scale. Often, Jenni’s small figures are dominated by the scenery, or different motif. It’s evocative of childhood and dreams, where things seem bigger than you, and your view isn’t fully formed yet. Jenni Murphy likes to use acrylics, layering to intensify the colours and give the perception of scale. Adding to the magic. She often takes a sketchbook on her travels, sketching real people, the filtering them through her imagination to produce pieces of wondrous art. Jenni on her work. “I like discovering the wonders of the world with a paintbrush and plentiful cups of tea.”
