About Jenny Chapman Artwork

Jenny Chapman Artwork

I create unique images of the landscape and wildlife of the wild west coast of the Scottish Highlands.

I've been living and working in Ardnamurchan - a rugged and remote peninsula on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands - since we moved here from the Scottish Borders in 1999. I'm a professional artist and writer and I attempt to scrape a living from my work, so far as I can :-) You can find out more about my background and training on my "Meet the Maker" page at https://folksy.com/users/JennyChapmanArtwork.

And no, although I love all creatures great and small, I don’t have either a cat or a dog. Why not? Well, there are a number of reasons. For example, we have several adders resident in the garden, golden eagles circle over the house, looking for prey, and we have pine martens living in the shed just outside the back door… These “rare and elusive” animals leap up onto the windowsills and tap on the windows; they jump into the hanging baskets, climb the trees to eat the berries (and the birds, alas), cavort on the roof in the night, and make an incredible nuisance of themselves... Although they are beautiful and delightful to watch, they are terribly destructive (they will rip a cardboard box to shreds in no time at all), they consume all the fruit we try to grow in the garden, and they are impossible to “house train” or even “shed train” - and they will eat almost anything smaller than themselves.

It's not exactly an ideal environment for domestic pets, so instead of drawing cats and dogs I paint and draw the untamed creatures and landscape around me in this wild and beautiful area. In fact, the abundance of wildlife and the ever changing light and presence of water in all its forms provide constant inspiration, especially for watercolour painting. In order to keep the prices low and share my images as widely as possible, I make work mainly for reproduction, although I sometimes sell originals - and some of my paintings are created as illustrations for my series of children’s chapter books, Tales from the Adventures of Algy.

My lifelong love of art work began when I was introduced to finger painting at kindergarten, at the tender age of 3 or 4. I swirled the mixture around on the paper with my hands, got delightfully covered in paint, and never looked back :-) The resulting artwork served as the backdrop for the family fish tank for many years... From then on, painting was my favourite hobby at home and art was my favourite subject at school. So instead of trying to "get on in the world" like grownups do, I've spent most of my adult life studying, teaching and practising art in one form or another... with a little writing on the side.

With the exception of the printed greetings cards and gifts, I now make all reproductions of my paintings in my own studio, using a professional quality inkjet printer with lightfast pigment inks on archival quality papers, or special canvas for canvas prints. I carefully mount and frame the paper prints myself, and stretch the canvas prints, which are then coated with Winsor and Newton’s professional UV varnish to protect them.
