Jenny Capon

Art House 24
Address: 61 Morton Street
Open: 2/3 September

Jenny makes original prints that combine hand drawn birds and animals with vintage maps. Currently focusing on the coastline, she makes connections between the wildlife and their natural habitat.

Jenny’s work uses found imagery alongside hand drawn and watercolour birds and animals. She regularly works to commission producing bespoke pieces, as well as producing short runs of giclee prints and cards. Working currently with maps of the coastline, she draws wildlife local to the area depicted on the map, drawing links between the landscape and the life that inhabits it. When working to commission she is interested in storytelling, and the personal history and meaning that can be drawn from place or the combination of places that are important to people.
