Local artists: Jena Pearson
Jena is inspired by the natural and organic in her striking paintings in mixed media and oils.
"I have just completed a HND in Fine Art at Blackpool and the Fylde College, where I gained Distinctions in most units.
I have come late to a serious study of art, as I have been a teacher of English during my working life, but had always regretted not pursuing art when I was 18.
Having taken early retirement I did a two year Access to Higher Education course at Preston College, followed by the HND, which I thoroughly enjoyed and where I learnt a lot about techniques. I would now like to continue painting and exhibit and sell my work.
