“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.”

Jenny (Jennifer) Meehan

Fine Artist in 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 mindfulness 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.  


Digital images of my paintings are numerous, and it is  quick and easy to obtain a license for use (see end of page for more details).



I am a member of Kingston Artists' Open Studios, Guildford Arts, Kingston Arts, and the Church of England.  I'm interested in spiritual formation, the contemplative way of life,  and emotional and psychological wellbeing.  My artworking is bound up in Christ centred spirituality which is an integral part of my own life journey.

Jenny Meehan (née Jennifer Gray)

Notable exhibitions include  the Imagined Worlds touring exhibition of artworks inspired by the poem ‘Kubla Khan’ and inclusion in  “Building Bridges, the Female Perspective" at  Tower Bridge Victorian Engine Rooms in 2016. Jenny has been a keen supporter of various charity art exhibitions over the years including the National Brain Appeals  " A Letter in Mind" at Gallery@oxo, South Bank, London  and the "Anatomy for Life" Exhibition for Brighton Sussex University Hospitals Trust in 2015


Selected by a wide range of judges  in open submission exhibitions,  her work appeals to the aesthetic  and emotional discernment of many, and has been displayed in many galleries. These include the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London,  in 2015, as part of their Open Exhibition,  and the Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, West Sussex,  as part of the  Pallant House Gallery/St Wilfrid's Hospice Open Art Exhibition in 2010.


Jenny Meehan's work has been included in several academic projects and and publications including  "Speaking Out - Women Recovering from the Trauma of Violence" by Nicole Fayard in 2014 and the ongoing  "Recovery" Exhibition project - Institute Of Mental Health/City Arts, Nottingham University,  also in 2014. While her romantic, lyrical, expressionistic, abstract paintings offer a contemplative space free from cares and concerns,  other strands of her practice engage with subjects ranging from violence, trauma recovery, psychoanalysis, and mental health.
