Jenny Simon has developed her own distinctive technique. The artist uses palette knives and her hands to apply/form multiple layers of oil paint onto canvas, which gives her artwork a rich quality and texture.
Jenny was drawn to the visual arts, theater, and dance from an early age. After running away from an abusive home at age 17, she found work with an airline and traveled the world. As a child, Jenny Simon came across postcards of German masters Karl Spitzweg and Albrecht Duerer. She was fascinated by their abilities to capture emotions and light and began studying their work.
Influenced by painters like Richter and Pollock, she started painting oils in abstraction and became a full-time artist in 1995. In 2002 she established her studio in Southern California where she currently resides. Jenny Simon’s work is sought after and collected worldwide. Simon has been shown in both Galleries & Museums and her artwork is held in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, England, Ireland, United Arab Emirates, and Germany.
