Born in Bondi, Sydney, in 1947 to a Chinese father and an English/Italian mother, Jenny grew up by sparkling blue sea and came of age in the day-glo colours of the 1960's. She worked with style guru and vintage trailblazer Vern Lambert at London's Chelsea Antique Market…“my university of fashion and life.” Upon returning to Australia in 1973, she opened her famous frock salon Flamingo Park in Sydney's Strand Arcade.
Over 40 years, Jenny's work has appeared on silk, on paper, on wool, on cotton, on ceramics and on canvas. Her creativity has been shaped by an eclectic mix of global influences, from Aboriginal Australian to early European, and the exotic arts of Africa, India, Asia and South America. Jenny's distinctive style has evolved, steeped in a passion for nature, to reflect a “strong, spontaneous, bold and optimistic” Australia.
Her designs are world-renowned, exhibited at the Art Gallery of NSW, the Australian National Gallery, Sydney's Powerhouse Museum, London's Victoria and Albert
