Jenny Parsons

Jenny and her husband David[q.v.] first met at art school and became teachers, who after taking early retirement, set up home at Bziers in Languedoc, southern France, but around 2010 decided to return home to The Laburnums, Hoxne Road, Eye, Suffolk. Jenny is a landscape artist and the decision to leave their large French house with two separate art studios was not easy as they had owned their French home for some 30 years and lived there full-time for 10 years. At Eye they were able to turn existing outbuildings into separate studio space where they paint during the day. At Eye, Jenny, who loves painting flowers, there was a space for a garden in which all manner of interesting plants could be cultivated. Their garden was created by their son Sam and his partner Annie who are Chelsea silver medal-winning landscape designers and they were also able to turn existing outbuildings into separate studio space. Jenny creates lush, vibrant, colourful pictures which are highly detailed and juxtapose the texture, colour and look of the plants which make up her garden both here in Suffolk and back in France. They had their first joint exhibition at Wingfield Barns in Suffolk and they exhibit regularly at the John Russell Gallery in Ipswich and elsewhere.
