Jennifer Hogwood's bold, distinctive style arises from an unerring sense of colour, a singular talent for observation, and a huge affection for her highland friends 'The McMoos'. Her endearing images communicate the essence of her subject with humour and charm. Just down the road from her house Jennifer's studio is a former milking parlour on a working farm in rural Wiltshire. The setting is perfect with beautiful views and a field full of cows just outside the door. It's always peaceful and this sense of calm makes it the ideal place for her to work. Seeing the cows grazing in the fields, chickens wandering around the yard and dogs ambling in and out is a constant source of inspiration. Animals have always been a big part of Jennifer's life and she finds their presence comforting - "they have such individual personalities and a lovely innocence about them."
