She is a gourmet cook, artist, and Editor of Travel Industry Today Jen (Jenness)was born in Calcutta, India and graduated with a fine arts degree. For many years worked in the airline industry, where we met. Jen actually inspired me to paint. Both of us travelled extensively in our careers and World Travel Mart, London each Autumn found us representing our respective companies. One year, following the trade show, we decided we would travel to the Southern England and paint. We hired a car and drove to Lyme Regis.
|My first watercolour painting at Lyme Regis England 1992|
Well it poured rain the entire weekend and I recall standing in the rain and paniting the ocean. It was a moody English cold Saturday, watching the pier at Lyme Regis and remembering the scene in the French Lieutenant's Woman, with Meryl Streep.

The watercolour book I use is heavy hand made paper, purchased from L. Cornelissen, 105 Great Russell St. London, England. It is one of my favourite art shops in the world.

I have several watercolour books full of the most wonderful memories . These are used, as studies, for larger pieces. When one paints outdoors, the memory is embedded in the mind, in looking at these sketches I can remember the sights, the sounds, the smells and some of the wonderful and famous people we met. (that is another story)
