I am Jenny, a visual artist living in Toronto, Canada.
I make art to process information about the world around me while raising questions about existentialism and spirituality. My work uses symbols to create mystical environments because I want viewers to wonder about life beyond the material world.
I graduated from OCAD University (Toronto, Canada) in 2016, with a major in Drawing and Painting and a minor in Illustration. Since then, I have mainly worked in watercolor, pen and clay.
