"I am a contemporary artist living and working in the UK.
My work is centred around time and place. Childhood memories, dreams and feelings are greeted with an array of reactions. My work is predominantly autobiographical and is highly responsive.
Drawing games and tools are of deep interest to me and feed my desire to go back to a time when I first discovered my creativity".
I could be lost-in-time and enter a sacred space 'innocence'.
Jennene Whiteley is a recently retired educator. Born in Manchester (England) in 1974, her childhood encompassed living in the urban to settling in rural Lancashire, where she works from her home studio overlooking the Countryside.
Her visually stimulating works are direct creations from her memories, dreams and visions. Her methods include vintage drawing tools, toys and books, her art discloses the deepest and darkest - what lies hidden leaves you in a state of query and unrest.
Jennene has learnt to explore her 'inner child', listening with intent - she responds to these awakening feelings, compelled to resolve them and seek the fable. To learn and to share her strength.
Her work is mesmerizing and cathartic; it is uncanny and often of the occult in nature.
What you will experience will sit uneasy with you and remind you of days gone by, of developing relationships, of fear and findings and those awkwardnesses that are seldom spoken about.
Motherhood and nature are important to Jennene's practice, bringing about the beauty in the World to help reach a sense of equilibrium.
