Josie Jenkins is an award winning artist based in Liverpool, UK. She studied for her BA Hons in Fine Art (Painting) at Norwich School of Art and Design, UK graduating in 2002 and has since exhibited in the UK and internationally. Josie was born in Yorkshire, United Kingdom, in 1980 and worked as an artist in Hull and Nottinghamshire, before settling in Liverpool. Josie has been making paintings and drawings of landscapes since the beginning of her career as a professional artist.
She says, “Landscape has become a tool for me to create a visual situation that the viewer can make sense of and connect with, while introducing other themes to the painting. It allows me to use a combination of abstraction and representation in the composition of the work. Although the landscapes that I paint never feature people, my paintings are more about people than anything else. I take inspiration from the incongruity between the natural and the man-made elements found in our modern landscape and use shapes, patterns, colours and objects that reference humanity in both subtle and more obvious ways. Layering has always been a strong theme in my work. I construct paintings in a series of layers, in some cases using the process of covering up and bringing back the under-painting.
