Established Scottish artist in watercolour specialising in botanical and other natural subjects.
‘The work of Jenny Matthews shows, just as Elizabeth Blackadder’s does, that painting flowers need not be merely botany; that in the right hands inspiration and poetry are completely compatible with precise observation and understanding of the distinctive characters of flowers and plants’. Duncan Macmillan, The Scotsman, 2016
‘Technically….Matthews is brilliant’. Giles Sutherland, The Times, September 2016
