JENNI MUMFORD b. 1949
An award winning artist with a career in creative art spanning over thirty five years.
Jenni Mumford grew up as the eldest child in a close knit family that continually travelled and moved from coastal town to inland rural settings in South Australia. The senses of country life as a young teenager were to be indelibly planted in her psyche and later play a defining role in her maturing as an artist. She would come to intuitively use Mother Nature as the preferred source of subject matter in sophisticated , versatile compositions that command attention with their use of explosive colour.
A progressive oil painter, Jenni Mumford has produced regular solo exhibitions in leading galleries in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide and participated in over 50 group exhibitions .
Work is represented in private collections in London, France, New York, New Zealand and Australia.
