 “I’m a flower and like all women am a part of mother nature.We have the power to heal everything in society. We can make the world a better place with our love and care.” -Blond Jenny

Blond Jenny is a painter, photographer, and filmmaker. Her work is a mix of storytelling through her alter ego, cartoon character Blond Jenny, her self-portraits, found objects from nature, 360-degree photos and videos.
Her recent work is focused on nature and women’s rights. She uses video and self-photography with mix media to expand the range of expression in her photography. She continues to develop techniques so she can challenge the boundaries of her expression. She likes to explore new media and play with it as part of her overall story. Her intent is to show that with nature or flowers we can be more connected and happy. She has found freedom in nature and continues to explore the path between life, death, and beyond.
Recent exhibits include Pow(h)er, Benjamin J. Dineen III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery, New Jersey; Video Art Department for Splice Film Fest Finalist Award Winner (2nd Place), New York City ; International Fine Arts Film Festival, Santa Barbara, CA, Official Selection ; MiraBan Video Art Showcase, Official Selection, Milan, Italy ;Geumgang Nature Art Biennale, South Korea ; Block 2 Video Exhibition Artist Honorarium Raleigh, NC; Feminism Media Artivist Biennale Short Film Exhibit, South Korea and Photography Department for Kathryn Markel Fine Arts.

“Blond Jenny’s relationship to nature is intimate, even erotic, in her self-portrait with purple freesias. Floral images have long been a stand-in for sexuality, but in Blond Jenny’s decoupaged panels are more explicit.” – Marilla Palmer
 
Blond Jenny Origin In 2006 I adopted the alias Blond Jenny (no “e”). It came from a cartoon character I watched as a child. The character’s name was Blonde Jenny (with an “e”) but when I decide on my name, I wanted it to have a different meaning. In French blond and blonde correspond to masculine and feminine forms. This distinction is not consistently made in English. My Blond Jenny mask has one form but it can be worn by a woman or man. When I use my mask with long hair and a dress, people perceive me as a woman doll. If I wore a man’s outfit and short hair, people would see a man. I wanted to use my mask and my artistic experience to remove the limits of gender and increase my freedom of expression so I made my name blond (no “e”).
