Note: Jennie Tuffs is originally a Londoner who is now based in rural Scotland near Edinburgh. Her paintings of flowers are recognised, not least by botanists, for their ability to capture and release the spirit trapped in the heart of the bloom. During the 1960's Jennie trained at St Martin's School of Art & Goldsmiths College in London and at the Academia dei Belli Arte in Florence. Jennie's work has been shown in solo and mixed exhibitions nationwide and her work is collected internationally. Jennie's work is known to millions of travelers in London through her posters commissioned by London Underground for display on the tube. Her most recent commission for the Royal Botanic Gardens both promotes and celebrates the newly redesigned and replanted Broad Walk at Kew. Other commissions include HMRC, Amnesty International. Cassells Publishers, BBC Scotland, London Transport Museum, The New York Graphic Society, The Property Services Agency, Practical Gardening, The Tree Council, Agricultural Risk Management, The Wine Society and Ricordi Grafiche.
