Mrs Harris’ Shop welcomes its first artist from regional South Australia.
Jenny Johnson lives in Mount Gambier and has been painting for the past ten years. It all started when she had some time on her hands and decided to take up a hobby. Painting won out over singing (probably a good thing, says Jenny) and she has become a regular recipient of awards throughout the south east, including the Chardonnay Lodge Coonawarra Vinicultural Art Prize and a recent South East Arts Society Award.
Jenny moved on from her initial water colours and now enjoys working with acrylics. While her works cover a variety of subjects, she particularly enjoys creating the colourful abstract pieces that make up the Cheers! series.
Enjoy Jenny’s work at Mrs Harris’ Shop on Saturdays and Sundays from 7 – 30 September.
Part proceeds from the sale of works benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, a cause close to Jenny’s heart. Her son developed Type 1 diabetes aged ten.
