Born outside of London, England, Jenna gains inspiration from her European roots, places she’s lived, travelled, as well as her current surroundings in Utah’s Rocky Mountains. Her work often draws on the meaning of her name, “Little Bird,” and is inspired by man’s connection and stewardship of the earth.
Hummingbirds often play the characters in the stories of her paintings. Like our lives often seem to be, they too are fast paced and there is something beautiful in trying to capture their stillness and unique colorful qualities--moments we often take for granted or miss within our own interactions with others.
After spending a semester studying abroad in Italy, and participating in a group show in New Zealand, Jenna graduated from Brigham Young University with a BFA (2006). She has since participated in Utah's Spring Salon, Religious Shows, group and solo shows across Utah, and is currently represented at Meyer Gallery, Park City, Utah and at 15th Street Gallery, SLC Utah.
Jenna enjoys singing, ballroom dancing, riding horses and spending time outdoors with her husband and four young children.
