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 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.
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.

I should call it the reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature,
seen through the veil of the soul.”

Copyright for all works of art by Jenny Meehan is managed by the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS) in the UK. If you wish to obtain a license to use a work of art by Jenny Meehan, please contact Jenny Meehan in the first instance to clarify your requirements.
This is quick and easy for both parties and is organised through the Design and Artist Copyright Society. (Note, my images are not shown on the "Art image" selection on the Design and Artist Copyright "Art Image" page. This does NOT mean you cannot apply for a license from DACS...They simply have a very limited sample selection of work in their "Artimage" page!) If you use their online form and attach the low resolution image of my artwork which you have found on the internet, they will know which image you seek permission for.
If you need any further clarification, the DACS website is clear and very helpful indeed, and they would be happy to help you.

"Drop in Drawing" (and painting) Information: Contact me via the contact form on this website for details and availability.
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.
