London-based artist and published author Jenny Hawke works in watercolour, ink, and acrylic, creating vibrant and colourful depictions of nature, spirituality, and everyday life.
Largely self-taught, she has also learnt from her father, Eddie Askew, artist, author and speaker whose art and books have inspired many people and continue to do so.
Working mostly with watercolour, Jenny loves the unpredictability of the medium as well as the vibrancy and fluidity of the colours it produces on the page. Passionate about communication, she uses her paintings to convey a sense of faith, peace and beauty, asking the viewer to pause and take time to reflect.
She has exhibited regularly for fifteen years in Surrey and in London. She also posts a thought for the day and a recent painting each day on her Facebook page, which can be seen at
