Originally from New Zealand, printmaker Jennifer Jokhoo works from her home studio in the Surrey Hills. She studied Fine art and majored in Painting/Printmaking at Canterbury University school of Fine Arts in New Zealand. In 1998 she went on to complete a Diploma in Secondary Teaching. Since qualifying she has followed a career in Art education and has taught in New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom.
Jennifer has always been passionate about printmaking. After honing her etching skills at Byam Shaw in 2008, Jennifer joined the London Print studio to experiment further with intaglio and relief printing techniques. In 2012 she was elected a member of Greenwich Printmakers association. In May 2016, she was elected an associate member of the Society of graphic and fine art. Jennifer’s prints are regularly exhibited throughout England and she is represented by numerous galleries.
She is primarily interested in expressing a sense of place in relation to a particular environment. Upon moving to the Surrey hills, Jennifer’s attention has shifted from London based architecture, to areas that are closer to home. Hillside views, fields, wide skies and horizontal bands are elements that now feature predominantly in her work. The landscapes reveal themselves slowly and require an element of patience! As does the creative process which requires intricate cutting and layering of colour which takes place over many weeks.
