Jenni was born in rural Victoria.
As a child she was encouraged to enjoy the outdoors and look to nature as a companion and teacher. It was not until later in adulthood that she was able to pursue her love of art.
Botanical art and the observation of the natural world, instilled in her in childhood, were then able to flourish with the help of excellent art courses in Australia and overseas. Her special interest is the observation, drawing and painting of minute and intricate details of the natural world.
