A popular artist will be unveiling her latest collection at the Evergreen Art Cafe in Daventry this Saturday.

The Sheaf Street venue will also host a Meet the Artist event with Jennifer Hogwood running from 1pm to 3pm.

She will be unveiling her latest collection of original and collectable limited edition art.

Jennifer will showcase both her quirky Highland cows, affectionately known as the McMoos, as well as an array of wildlife, all captured in her unique style.

Growing up in the Bedfordshire countryside, as a child Jennifer Hogwood was surrounded by rolling fields, spending much of her time outdoors, and so animals have always been a huge part of her life.

It was her desire and love for animals that led her down the path to becoming a best selling and highly collectable artist.

Always creative, even as a young girl, she loved painting and with no formal art training, having painted all her life, Jennifer is essentially a self-taught artist.

Jennifer’s wonderful McMoos and her limited edition prints are hand embellished, adding sparkle to the McMoos’ eyes with tiny little jewels to make them even more adorable!

Jennifer has even created her own unique shade of brown, which she uses for every new McMoo masterpiece she paints.

She always starts with the nose first and works out from there, building up layers of paint and detail quickly to build up a richness of texture and colour.

She will be on hand to talk a little bit more about her work, what led her to become an artist and the inspiration behind her pieces.

Access to the event is by invitation only and anyone wishing to go along is urged to get in touch with the Evergreen Art Cafe by calling 01327 878117 or emailing gallery@evergreenartcafe.co.uk.
