Iím Jenny Mather; born and brought up in N Yorkshire, a classical training at the Slade School of Fine Art was followed by 10 years teaching in Nigeria, W Africa. These experiences gave me the ability to combine technique and spontaneity, Western aesthetics and the rhythms of African art. Returning to UK and based in Sheffield, I taught in secondary education before post graduate Art Therapy at Sheffield University led to work in special education, then some years with Family Service Unit and as a tutor on the Sheffield University Art Therapy course. The exploration and insights of the therapeutic process combined with continuing Christian awareness and relevance have resulted in paintings which demand to be shown and shared. Iím very conscious of an ongoing creative process between self, creation and Creator. During the process of creating a painting I continually seek to capture that first moment of wonder when an aspect of landscape, piece of music, or an experience becomes sharply focused. My work is semi-abstract yet retains figurative elements which allow the observer to engage with the image. Vital elements within the work are relationships and rhythm between self and subject. These encounters are extended when in commissions I work closely with a client to understand and interpret their vision into an image. Trained in the discipline of traditional uses of watercolours and oils, I have since used these strengths as the basis for experimenting with mixed- media. I work with materials which emphasise the emotion of a particular subject's demands, raw and textural or smooth and flowing, charcoal with acrylics or watercolour and pastels, a variety of combinations. During the painting process some large canvases need to be released from the confines of their support to become draped and sculpted. My painting also requires reflection, meditation and relationship so that I am responding to a creative, birthing process. In my studio I run regular tuition studio sessions.
