A SCOTTISH artist is mounting an exhibition in Knutsford.

Jennifer Mackenzie will be showcasing a series of life works and landscape paintings at Holly Johnson Antiques.

The exhibition entitled A Splash of Colour runs from May 6 to May 28.

Graduating from the Glasgow School of Art in 1971, Jennifer was influenced by iconic painters David A Donaldson, Duncan Shanks, and Alexander Goudie who were teaching there at the time.

Jennifer went on to teach Art and Design in schools in Lanarkshire, Inverness and Sutherland for several years.

This gifted artist has exhibited in both group and solo exhibitions at several British galleries and art fairs.

Jennifer was shortlisted for the 2020 and 2021 Scottish Portrait Awards.

Jennifer's still life paintings are a personal response to her environment in terms of colour, light and space, and explore the distinctive characteristics of oil paint, primarily in studies featuring flowers, collated objects and photographs.

Many of Jennifer’s still lifes are inspired by well-known Scottish painters, such as Joan Eardley, Ann Redpath and J D Fergusson.

Her love of colour has developed over the years, and looking at the balance of shapes, colours and tonal values, Jennifer sometimes exaggerates perspective and enhances colour in her artwork.

Holly Johnson, who founded the Knutsford internationally acclaimed arts, antiques and interiors business, said: “Jennifer has such a unique style that has been influenced by several iconic artists, including the Scottish colourists, and we look forward to the Splash of Colour that her work will bring to the showroom.”

The exhibition is being held at the two-storey showroom on St Ann’s House, Market Place, off King Street.
