Jenny also won a prize with The Miniature Art Society of Florida where she was awarded third prize in the Transparent Watercolour category.
 
The World Federation of Miniatures Exhibition (WFM), which only happens every four years and ran in conjunction with the South African Miniaturists (MASSA) also exhibited her miniatures.
 
Jenny has featured in a variety of publications in the UK. The Challenge of Painting in Miniature was used in the Artists & Illustrators 30th anniversary souvenir edition, featuring her artwork “Speckled Friends.”
This is London, The Leisure Painter, Farming weekly, Trend and various other magazines have also produced articles about her miniature painting.
 
“Seeing an animal for that brief moment whether I am out and about walking in the hills or just taking a stroll with friends and family, the camera or sketchbook will always be with me. You just never know what composition will be around the next corner. Reproducing those moments is what wildlife painting is all about.”
