Jenine's journey into the world of art started in her childhood with simple pencil drawings. She started out with Oils in the early 1980's. In 1995 she decided to try her hand at pastels and after a while was doing works on commission as well as projects for herself. In 2007 Jenine took up Oils again and had to re learn many of her skills. She is really enjoying the medium and found she preferred it to others she has tried.
Jenine loves telling a story through her art and have done a variety of works including portraits, landscapes, seascapes, many animals and birds and even the odd train. You can view her work on jeninebell.com.au.
