Jenny Pery was born in Calcutta, India, and read languages at Oxford before becoming an artist and art historian.
She studied Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art (taught by James Robertson), St Martin's School of Art, the Byam Shaw School and Exeter College of Art and Design, where KARL WESCHKE was an important influence.
She later acquired an MA in Printmaking at Camberwell College of Art and Design.

Now living and working on the edge of Dartmoor, she is an active member of the Devon Artists Network, and holds Open Studio exhibitions every autumn.

She is a member of the  21 Group of Artists and a member of the Plymouth Society of Artists, The South West Academy and the Devonshire Association.
Jenny Pery
exhibits her work frequently in group shows in the South West of England.
She has also had many solo exhibitions in the South West and elsewhere, including Oxford, Cambridge, London and Tunis, and her work is in many private and public collections.
A further interest is making Artists' Handmade Books - often a collaborative venture with other artists - and some of these are in the Victoria and Albert Museum's Special Book Collection.

Jenny Pery combines her own work with writing on Arts and Artists.
