Meet the Artist Series: Jenny Sammons
By Visit Fairfield | March 16, 2022
Meet Jenny Sammons, a local artist who brings whimsy to the Fairfield art scene.
Inspired by folk artists like Grandma Moses, Jenny's work has a whimsical feel that is unmatched. She is particularly drawn to African motifs and patterns as a way of connecting with her ancestral roots. Her pieces often depict animals, nature, and people in bright colors, and they always manage to bring a smile to the viewer's face.
A talented singer, jewelry maker, and painter, Sammons has a goal with her art; she wants to create art that makes people feel good. "I want my art to make people happy," she says. "I want them to see the world in a different way, and maybe even see themselves in a different light."
It's clear that Jenny Sammons is an artist who cares about her work and its impact on others. Her methodology varies depending on her mood and inspiration but she is not afraid to experiment and her latest creations use a common dot motif.
This artist is one to watch, and we can't wait to see what she comes up with next. Be sure to check out her website and follow her on social media to stay up-to-date on her latest work. You can also find her art for sale at the Fairfield Art Association located in the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.
