Jenny Ellis-Newman is a retired university lecturer who took up painting about 10 years ago. Her preferred medium is acrylic but she also likes to experiment with mixed media and a variety of styles and subjects. She loves to play with bright colours, in particular those that are complementary, enjoying the brightness achieved by their juxtaposition. Her favourite subjects to paint are children, birds and abstracts.
Group exhibitions in which Jenny has exhibited include: Manjar Art Awards, Joondalup Art Awards, Wanneroo Art Awards, Bassendean Art Awards, Bayswater Art Awards, Kalgoorlie Boulder Art Awards and many local and country exhibitions. Jenny has sold both locally and overseas.
