JENNIFER MACKENZIE DA:
WELCOME TO JENNIFER'S WEBSITE WHERE YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST, SEE EXAMPLES OF HER WORK AND FIND OUT WHERE YOU CAN VIEW AND BUY HER PAINTINGS.
Jennifer lives and works in Golspie, Sutherland but is originally from Coatbridge near Glasgow. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1971, spent a further year at Jordanhill College of Education and then taught Art and Design in schools in Lanarkshire, Inverness and Sutherland.
Since leaving teaching in 2001, Jennifer has been a full time professional artist, exhibiting in group, and solo exhibitions at a number of British galleries and Art Fairs.
You can see a selection of Jennifer's still life , landscape, and figure paintings and drawings in the Gallery pages.
“ My paintings are a personal response to my environment, in terms of colour, light and space, and reflect my time at Glasgow School of Art in the 1960s, when drawing skills were still considered an important element of our coursework and painting was in the Scottish Tradition of alla prima oil painting - part of the legacy of the Glasgow Boys and Scottish Colourists.
Over the years I have developed my love of colour which is expressed mainly through the medium of oil paint, and largely in still life compositions. I also enjoy sketching outdoors and in the studio, as well as life drawing and other classes when I can."

JENNIFER IS CURRENTLY EXHIBITING.
All the works on this site are here as examples only. I don't sell direct from the website, preferring to sell from the various galleries who show my work, but I'm always pleased to see visitors at the studio and you can also contact me via this website with any queries.
The present Covid crisis means that, like many others, I am confined to home just now. Galleries too are closed to the general public but open online and still selling artwork. I have paintings in five galleries just now, all of which are working hard to promote and sell the works of the artists they represent. I have work in all of the galleries listed below.
Fotheringham Gallery, Castle Gallery, Gallery Heinzel, Morningside Gallery, and Strathearn Gallery
