Blog Feature: Jenni Horne

A breath of fresh air is what first comes to mind when you lay your eyes on Jenni Horne’s lovely artwork. Her images are very contemporary, but also offer a touch of nostalgia to your senses.

Jenni has been teaching art for the past fifteen years, after painting murals on nursery walls at her friends’ requests. She was more than willing to help although her concentration in art school was printmaking and sculpture. Jenni feels that teaching has helped her to look at subjects in their simplest form. She just started painting more seriously in the past four years

Jenni is inspired by many things daily. But you will most often find her painting trucks, bikes and birds. Her amazing journey finding her own voice in painting all started with a momma bird, her nest and babies. She fell in love with them immediately and a series emerged. Eventually she became inspired by other subjects like bikes, trucks, and then campers. She is also influenced by her online community which helps keep her ideas fresh and new.

When Jenni isn’t painting she also likes to sew, decorate her home, run, work out and read. She has several genres on her night stand table to keep her entertained.

Jenni is generously offering this lovely print to one of my readers. Just leave a comment about one of your favorite images by Jenni for a chance to win. The winner will be announced next Monday.
