Summer in the City Opening Recap

Observation – 12 x 12 Oils on Canvas by Jennie Rosenbaum wow what a fantastic night! thankyou to everyone who attended 🙂 as with the last exhibition I got so caught up that I forgot to take photographs and if I am the one on the other side of the camera I can guarantee I’m…

the sketchbook Library

Extension by Jennie Rosenbaum I’m currently working on an international project called the sketchbook project. it’s a really nifty idea and I’m pretty excited about it. The concept is that they send out a moleskine notebook to the artist with a theme and a due date. our job is to fill that notebook up with…

Upcoming Solo Show – Purity

The gallery has wonderful natural light and a really interesting layout that I think will be perfect for my white Impasto works…. this location (apart from being one I’ve always wanted to show in) is just down the road from where Liam and I had our accident. so it makes sense that my first solo should be so close to where it all began, and with my most hopeful and uplifting works.
