Jenny Meehan is based in East Surrey/South West London, UK.

 

"Jamartlondon" is the personal website of Surrey/South West London based painter-poet Jenny Meehan. It's here to introduce you to what I invest a lot of my time into. I hope you enjoy your look around. If this is your kind of thing, then sign up to my newsletter and my Wordpress Artist's Journal, and I will keep you posted.

A lot of my paintings are available to buy. I am not currently represented by a gallery. Just contact me to arrange a viewing if there is anything you want to look closer at.

Working hard, and living as deeply as I can!

It's time to slow down for the Winter...

If you have free exhibition space available, please let me know, as myself or fellow artists are always looking to show our work! The majority of artists struggle to share their work as much as they would wish because of frequently being asked to pay large amounts of money simply to show what they are doing. Help change this by supporting artists in showing their art work free of charge.

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 licence a work of art by Jenny Meehan, please contact Jenny Meehan in the first instance to clarify your requirements.

Licencing an image 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 licence 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.

Also, please of course feel free to contact me if you are looking for a particular type of artwork image, as I have a large archive of images myself. I will also be able to let you know the maximum size the digital image is available at. If you then wish to licence the artwork image, you would then contact the Design and Artist Copyright Society to arrange the licencing agreement according to your requirements. Once paid and agreed, I then supply the high resolution image directly to you.

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 Sessions for 2015

Friday 27th February 1 - 3pm
Friday 20th March 1 - 3pm
Friday 17th April 1 - 3pm
Friday 15th May 1 - 3pm

The idea 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. As to what you actually do, this could be from drawing from the imagination, copying something from life, designing something abstract, or making a collage of text and images. Or simply experimenting and exploring what it is like to use a particular material or method of drawing.

I will provide some ideas if people like, but anticipate people coming along with some idea of what they might like to do beforehand. However, just a vague idea is just fine! Participants also need to bring their own materials along with them. I am gearing it mostly to dry media, ie pencil, charcoal, oil pastels, chalk pastels, pens, biros, markers etc. If someone sneaks a bit of paint in, I won't complain though.. (how could I?) however, for practical reasons, you might need to work outside if you are painting medium or large scale!

The idea of holding the sessions on a "drop in" basis is that is it often hard for people to commit to a regular group a long time in advance, however, you do need to let me know the same week if you will be attending, as there is limited space and so I need to know about numbers. I won't be formally planning a structured session... 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.
