Jennie Tuffs is originally a Londoner who is now based in rural Scotland near Edinburgh.
Her paintings of flowers are recognised, not least by botanists, for their ability to capture and release the spirit trapped in the heart of the bloom.
Her primary medium, liquid acrylic, is chosen to reflect the flowers' own mercurial energy and light. Over recent years her work has shifted in focus from plants to setting, stepping back.
During the 1960s Jennie trained at St Martin's School of Art & Goldsmiths College in London and at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence.
Jennie's work is known to millions of travellers in London through her posters commissioned by London Underground for display on the tube.
