Jennifer Mackenzie is a Scottish artist who lives and works in Golspie, Sutherland but is originally from Coatbridge near Glasgow. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1971, spent a further year at Jordanhill College of Education and then taught Art and Design in schools in Lanarkshire, Inverness and Sutherland. Since leaving teaching in 2001, Jennifer has been a full time professional artist. She is a member of Visual Arts Sutherland and Highlands Open Studios.She says of her work: “My paintings are very much a personal response to my environment, in terms of colour, light and space, and in the Scottish painterly tradition, reflecting my time at GSA with tutors such as William Drummond Bone, Sandy Goudie, and David Donaldson. I enjoy exploring colour and the tactile qualities of oil paint, largely through still life.”
