Jennifer Lockwood was born in Wetherby, West Yorkshire in 1981and currently resides in Manchester city centre. Jennifer took a keen interest in art at and early age. At the age of 16 she gained an unconditional place at Leeds College of Art and Design, where she studied 3-Dimensional Design. Here she gained knowledge of all aspects of design. She then attended the University of Lincoln where she carried on her interest in Interior Design, then specialising in Museum and Exhibition Design.
After leaving university she decided to start painting again, in her spare time. She now uses her formal training to create her abstract paintings with an organic twist.
Her paintings have a fluid, flowing composition, which eases your eyes throughout the paintings. With influences such as the human body and nature its self, jennifer has unique way of expressing herself in her paintings. This somehow gives you a warm feeling as the painting wraps its self around you in a cocoon type effect. Jennifer says:
“I am keen to explore the use of colour to create striking pieces of artwork. I like to use various media with my art, though I must admit I am currently using acrylic on canvas. I love the fact that you can achieve the texture and the vibrancy of colours with them.”
Jennifer has had various small exhibitions in bars in and around Leeds and Manchester. Her plans are to have a sole exhibition in the near future.
