Jennifer Jokhoo

Biography

Jennifer Jokhoo is a UK based printmaker and painter. Working from her home studio in the Surrey Hills. Jennifer studied Fine Art and majored in Painting and Printmaking at Canterbury University school of Fine Arts in New Zealand, In 1998 she went on to complete a Diploma in Secondary Teaching. Since qualifying she has followed a career in art education and has taught in New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Jennifer has always been passionate about printmaking. After honing her etching skills at Byam Shaw in 2008, Jennifer joined the London print studio to experiment further with intaglio and relief printing techniques.

Lino cutting is a satisfying process, however it is very unforgiving. An image is created by cutting into the lino. Any area removed will remain white when printed. The key is to have a harmonious balance of tone and mark. The majority of Jennifer's prints are created using Reduction lino printing. This is a method whereby a multi-colour print is pulled from a single block. The lino is inked with the lightest colour and the first printing is made. The areas to remain that colour are then cut away. This is the process for each layer; therefore the process cannot be rewound/repeated. As a result my editions are kept very small.
