Jenny Capon


OPEN: 7+8 & 14+15 September

Jenny make prints that combine vintage maps and found imagery with hand drawn and watercolour birds and ani-mals. She regularly works to commission producing be-spoke pieces, as well as producing short runs of giclee prints and cards.

“All the work I make starts as original pictures in water-colour and pencil. I collect old maps, and inspired by the shapes and contours in the maps, I draw animals and birds that are native to the area shown. There is some-thing lovely about a bird shaped by a map, which is a birds eye view of the world.”
