ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Jennylynd James worked in the food industry for over 25 years in Florida, California, Ireland, the Caribbean, and Canada. In Ireland, she discovered a hidden talent for art and through private instructors was introduced to oil painting, portraiture and sketching. She uses the vivid colours of her heritage and global travel to influence her work. From childhood, Jennylynd is a singer and musician with a passion for stage performance in Classical and Jazz music.  Her recent artwork focuses on capturing the joy of making music.

ARTIST STATEMENT

“My acrylic paintings capture musicians and singers in the act of making music. With photographs as a reference, I crop the most animated scenes from performances and use loose brush strokes to portray movement. Whether it’s the bent back of a saxophonist or the forward lean of a pianist, actions are captured in simple strokes. Figurative images of musicians are deliberately portrayed without faces. The viewer has a personal experience with the image, both imagining the facial expressions and hearing the music produced. I like painting groups of musicians and singers to create the illusion of a loud rich sound, while adding humour to enrich the visual connection to characters in the painting”
