About Me

My photo
I'm a nature obsessed artist who lives in an little house in a little vilage in the Highlands of Scotland.I wander around a lot in the wilds and spend time just looking at things like birds and moths and trees and rocks. The rest of the time I'm drawing or painting, making odd things out of old stuff and drinking giant cups of peppermint tea. Imogen Greene is my pen name. I like the way it sounds and it just kind of suits what I do.

Hello all, just to let you know I have been very busy working under my own name of Jenny McLaren- and because working under two names is getting a bit complicated, I will shortly be phasing Imogen's work over to Jenny full time ( including my etsy shop), this means I will be closing this blog soon; so If you would like to continue following me (I hope you do!) you can follow my other blog by clicking on this this link. Thanks for your support, I really appreciate it!

Wild Britain Exhibition

I packaged and posted 5 pieces for the Wild Britain exhibition at the Jam Factory, Oxford today. It has been organised by Clare Eguchi from the Tube Gallery. Clare found me through my etsy shop and I'm delighted to be showing my work next to such a varied and accomplished collection of artists, all inspired by wildlife. Please follow the links to for more info. I had been planning on driving down to deliver the work and attend the opening but unfortunately I have too much work to catch up on. On to the next deadline.....

Butterfly gem paintings

I'm really enjoying making these little butterfly paintings but I'm going to be working on some feather ones tomorrow. I hope to have some to add to my etsy shop soon, once all my other work is completed...I've been busy with commissions and working for exhibitions, it's good to be busy!

Aquamarine Blues

I spent today in the studio working on these little butterfly jewels.
 The red kite is an experimental piece from a couple of days ago.
 The butterflies are destined for this exhibition at the Jam Factory in Oxford in August. I'll be taking a road trip to deliver the work and I'm looking forward to spending a couple of days exploring Oxford.
