FabrianoInAcquarello 2022 Artist

Jennie Tuffs is a Londoner now living and working near Edinburgh, Scotland.  She pioneered the fine-art use of her medium - Magic Color liquid acrylic.  In her recent work the focus has shifted from composed studio compositions of natural forms to an emphasis on location, sense of space and intimate landscape.

in the 1960s, Tuffs trained at St Martin’s School of Art, the Academia dei Belli Arte, Florence, and Goldsmiths College, University of London.

As one of the artists commissioned by London Underground for a series of posters on the transport network, her work is known to millions of travellers.  She was the featured artist for the 1980s and 1990s in London Transport Museum’s 2017 - 2019 exhibition “Poster Girls”, celebrating the work of female artists for London Transport in the 20th and 21st centuries.  

Covid 19’s long isolation resulted in a creative intensity, experimentation and new approaches - “angry” landscapes and collage compositions.  The landscapes exploring local woodland and weather;  recent collage works re-constructed entirely from watercolour paper prepared with blocks of pure colour - Lock Down, Cut Up.

Tuffs's work has been shown in solo and mixed exhibitions nationwide and her work is collected internationally.
