Originally from New Zealand, printmaker Jennifer Jokhoo works from her studio in the Surrey Hills. She studied Fine art and majored in Painting/Printmaking at Canterbury University school of Fine Arts in New Zealand. In 1998 she went on to complete a Diploma in Secondary Teaching. Since qualifying she has followed a career in Art education and has taught in New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom.
Jennifer has always been passionate about printmaking.
After honing her etching skills at Byam Shaw in 2008, Jennifer joined the London Print studio to experiment further with intaglio and relief printing techniques. In 2012 she was elected a member of Greenwich Printmakers association.
Jennifer has an eclectic interest in architectural structures; recurring geometry, pattern and the effects of colour and light. More recently her focus has shifted to the natural landscape. Architectural structures are now starting to feature as underlying elements in Jennifer’s work. Each reduction linocut is produced by hand; from the initial drawings, to the intricate cutting, inking and printing of editions. Her limited edition prints are crafted under the watchful eye of two Burmese cats and a Whippet!
