Artist Statement

Artist, Jenny Buchanan

My artwork aims to capture the moments in life that make people happy, whether it be a favourite holiday destination, person, place, regular weekend activity or any combination of these.  My goal is to provide enjoyment and entertainment to the viewer, so they will treasure their piece for many years to come.  My hope is that owners of my artwork will gain as much pleasure from owning it as I have in creating it.

I like to work in different mediums and in a variety of styles.  I am not the sort of person who can do the same type of thing over and over again.  My mind is often buzzing with new ideas but rarely do I have the time to put them all into practice.

The colours of nature have always been an inspiration for me as their vibrancy and diversity never cease to amaze me.  The ocean is a theme common in much of my work, as it has been in much of my life, therefore rich blues and greens tend to dominate.  I find these colours to be very soothing.

I believe art will always be a part of my life.  Anything else seems incomprehensible at this point.
