SKILL SET

Coming from an artistic background, Jenniemyma attended art college before embarking on a career as a dancer and choreographer in the early 2000's. Jenniemyma has travelled all over the world and her experiences and immersion in different natural environments, particularly in India have influenced her art, finding deeper creative meaning and giving each piece its own inspirational story. Dance enabled Jenniemyma to explore her talent in other ways and introduced her to costume design and Mehndi. In 2013 began developing her art style.

Jenniemyma had always been interested in holistic therapies and used mindfulness to help focus on her art process. This led to Jenniemyma exploring a deeper connection and studying yoga and forest therapy which cemented her connection to her art style and enhanced her latest works.

As an experienced teacher Jenniemyma had always used her teaching skills over the years working with all age groups in education as well as complex and acute mental health patients in residential clinics. Jenniemyma uses her art style mixed with mindfulness technique to teach as an emotional release and relaxation in her art masterclasses and even events and gallery competitions.
