Jenny Matthews studied Botanical Illustration at the Edinburgh College of Art under Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, graduating in 1986. She is known for her paintings of flowers, and has since stated that 'The colour and form of flowers is what attracts me to them and botany as a theme is one I have been able to pursue whilst living abroad in France and Indonesia.' Jenny paints in watercolour, and has said that the medium and process is central to her work through the effects created with water, pigment and paper. Jenny exhibits regularly with the Union Galley, Edinburgh, and she has paintings in the collections across the UK, including Queen Margaret Hospital, Edinburgh, and Lister Hospital, London.
