Jenny Morgan, R.S.M.A.
Jenny Morgan studied at Camberwell College of Art in the 1960's, then travelled extensively gaining a sound knowledge of the sea and ships. Her work emotively responds to the untamed element of the sea and its inspiring changing moods. Accurate portrayal of ships is as important to Jenny as the more random freedom of moving water in creating overall composition. Working mainly in oils, but sometimes using gouache on heavy paper, and always using brushes, Jenny Morgan uses research material to work up sketches, then transfers those ideas onto canvas. Photographic reference material is essential for much of her work, especially in depicting the now extinct deep sea trawling industry as a backup to the resources from somebody previously directly involved in the industry.
