Born and raised in Seoul, Korea, Jenny DeLaughter’s observations of the world were influenced by a blend of eastern and western cultures. A delicate eye was inherited from her mother, who often accompanied her to the lake to draw together and share differences in perceiving nature. An early emphasis on highly detailed renderings began to give way to a desire to explore more abstract expression.
Her works are executed spontaneously in which intuitive, gestural strokes become the “words” of an inner dialogue in the painting process. Years of private art lessons and formal studies resulted in a Master of Fine Arts degree from Texas Woman’s University in 2013. Jenny lives and paints in Dallas, Texas and has exhibited works in numerous juried group and solo shows. She has paintings in private and public collections.
