Jenny Banks

To be surrounded by nature is where I am happiest and it is my favourite place to be. 

I have lived most of my life in Southend and have spent the last 21 years living close to the seafront. While growing up I was always drawn to art, and spent many happy hours learning to draw with my grandad. 

Now I mostly use acrylics on canvas and try to capture the ever changing moods and colours of the clouds across the Estuary.
