Dr. Jennylynd James is a “Renaissance” woman: an artist, writer, and Classical music singer with a long work history as a food scientist! She is a Scientist, but did you know she also paints and has written a series of travel memoirs which recount her many adventures in relocation? In addition, she discovered a hidden talent for drawing and painting while working as an entrepreneur in the Republic of Ireland.

Her artsy flair in running a food business took an interesting turn when in an amateur art class the instructor found Jennylynd excelled in portraiture and sketching. Jennylynd now lives in Toronto Canada where she has embraced self expression in art as a new lifestyle. Her artwork is held in collections in Canada, the United States, the Caribbean and the United Kingdom.
