Art by Jenny K

Assemblage Artist, Ailurophile, Educator, Wandering Soul

Jenny K. at Malahide Castle Gardens outside Dublin, Ireland.

As a teacher by day and artist by night, Jenny K. spent nearly three decades working in the public school system while nurturing her creativity on evenings and weekends.

Jenny has been showing her art professionally since 2018 when she became a juried member of the San Tan Artists’ Guild and was invited to participate in Hope Springs Eternal at Grotto Gallery in Tempe, AZ. Since then, Jenny has displayed her work in 12 juried shows including the Top Shelf Invitational sponsored by the Sonoran Arts League (Cave Creek, AZ) and the 17th Annual Juried Fine Arts Show sponsored by the Gilbert Visual Arts League (Gilbert, AZ)

These days, Jenny spends her time taking art projects to residents of independent and assisted living centers and building her YouTube channel.

Jenny’s art focuses on mixed media collage and assemblage pieces along with altered books and creative junk journals. Her goal as an artist is to leave the world a little brighter, a little happier, and a little more colorful than she found it. She is a teacher, writer, and artist in pursuit of a life well-lived, a family well-loved, and creativity well-tended.

Currently, Jenny lives in Queen Creek, Arizona, with her husband, Jeff (aka Lochinvar), and a colony of cats who serve as Zen master mentors and staunchly honest critics of her work.

Jenny K. has two art-based product lines. Under the name The Cockeyed Colorist, Jenny and Lochinvar design 3-D do-it-yourself art kits. These Colarting Kits - where coloring meets art - add a new dimension to the adult coloring craze. More than 20 designs are currently being improved and will be available soon. The other product line features one-of-a-kind pieces and handmade journals with upcycled elements. These can be seen on the portfolio page and the ArtbyJennyK Etsy shop.
