Jennifer Golding

After University, Jennifer’s first career was in Photography, which was an exciting time for her. Being commissioned by magazines and newspapers in London required a rapid turnaround and work had to be of the highest quality. She then worked for Oxford University as an Archaeological Photographer, with summers spent on archaeological sites in Europe, photographing amazing artefacts and occasionally hanging out of helicopters to photograph the sites from the air. When photography became digital, it lost all its charm and Jennifer changed tack and retrained as a fine art portrait painter, and painting from life every day gave her traditional and rigorous training. When she discovered fine art printmaking she was hooked. Since then, she has studied Printmaking at Heatherleys School of Art and Curwen Print Study Centre. She joined Sudbourne Printmakers in 2016.

Jennifer specialises in reduction relief printmaking, but is also a keen etcher. Each print dictates which technique to use. Prints start with drawings and colour studies, reduction prints require planning as many layers of colours are built up to create the print. The core of her work is figurative narrative, setting a scene and beginning to tell a tale. Jennifer exhibits regularly in Suffolk and has had her work accepted into recent exhibitions of the Scottish Society of Artists, the Bath Art Prize and the Chelsea Art Society.
