Jenna Watkins specialises in horse portraits in her preferred medium of acrylic paint or pencil drawing format

Jenna has always loved drawing and painting, but took a different path at university to study Fashion Design at The London College of Fashion and has spent her twenties pursuing a career as a garment technologist for several multiple high street retailers, which she continues to do so, before rediscovering art again this year

Jenna is self taught and has always had a passion for painting as well as a passion for horses. Due to her commitment to a horse she shared for many years, Jenna’s painting has taken a back seat until recently, when the horse was retired. So now Jenna has the time to combine her two original passions in life; art and horses

Jenna says of her pictures ‘I like to show the beauty of the animal by dramatically highlighting the features through shade and light, a bit like a fashion beauty shoot in a glossy magazine. I also try to bring in the character of the animal, the little things; a soft muzzle, a kind eye – the parts of the face that the owner knows all to well but are not always brought out in the photos they take’

Jenna lives in Hertford, Hertfordshire, with her partner Alex and her cat, Boogle
