Jenny Meehan  Artworking  Surrey/South West London

 

Using digital imagery, painting, drawing and writing, I take a primarily process-led approach, acting in response to the materials I am working with. It is a spirit and emotion led practice which I  often describe as an articulation of fragmentary experience.  This expresses the core of  my art-working well, as all I create is  autobiographically rooted and expressionistic.  It acts as a kind of  "re-membering"; a way of bringing things together, and making sense of life.

 

My interest in spirituality and mindfullness mean that I view my art work as a type of contemplative tool, which hopefully enables the viewer to connect with their own emotional life and experiences and gives space in a busy world for imagination and connection.  Working with abstraction provides an opportunity for openness, allowing the viewer to determine their own path into my work, and this is coloured by their own experience and memory, unique to them.

 

 

 

Contact me if you have any enquiries.  I am happy to arrange studio visits and hold regular Open Studios.  Digital images of my paintings are numerous, and it is  quick and easy to obtain a license for use  through DACS (see end of page for more details).

 

I am a qualified teacher (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) with experience in teaching both children and adults.  

 

I am a member of Kingston Artists' Open Studios, Guildford Arts, Kingston Arts, and St Paul's Church of England Church in Hook, Surrey.  I am interested in spiritual formation and artworking in relation to emotional and psychological wellbeing.  Currently I am investing my time into painting, training in the art of spiritual direction, (spiritual mentoring/guidance) and discovering the contemplative way of life.  My artworking is bound up in Christ centred spirituality which informs my everyday life, and is an integral part of my own life journey.

“If I were called on to define briefly the word 'art,'

I should call it the reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature,

seen through the veil of the soul.”

Will be once a month. Note you need to bring your own materials, but very basic drawing materials, ie pencil and charcoal are provided if you have none to bring.

 

  The objective is  that I am available to help you to develop your own projects and ideas. I will be there to add my technical  and practical input, and help you by discussing your direction and the difficulties which may be encountered along the way, if you so require.  

 

On these occasions the session takes a "workshop" style approach, with plenty of individual input and opportunities for feedback, discussion, and analysis, as you consider ways of developing your own direction.

Welcome to Jamartlondon;

Website of East Surrey/South West London based Painter-Poet

Jenny Meehan.  

Jenny Meehan is based in East Surrey/South West London, UK.  This website gives you an introduction to her art working. You can follow her activities in more detail through the Jenny Meehan Artist's Journal, on Wordpress.

 

2016 Open Studio Event - As part of  Kingston Artists' Open Studios  Jenny Meehan will be showing some of her latest work on the weekends of the 11/12th June and 18/19th June.  Come along and meet the artist.  For an invitation and reminder nearer the time, contact Jenny Meehan via the contact page.

Jenny thrives on  experimentation and innovation; She explores developing aspects of her painting and these feed into her evolving imaginative narrative. Her highly personal style reflects aspects of her own life experience, yet also leaves the viewer wonderfully free to embark on their own visual journey, opening up their senses to the interplay of light, colour, texture, movement and stillness.
