Jenny Cheng-Burke studied fine art and printmaking at the University of Toronto and the Ontario College of Art & Design, followed by illustration, photography, animation and graphic design at George Brown College. She started her artistic career as a graphic designer at the University of Toronto’s Media Centre.
In 2008, after a career in graphic design and retail ownership, Jenny retired in the Northumberland Hills along with her husband, Ken Burke, to a country property just north of Cobourg.
Beyond gardening, volunteering, cooking and free-lance graphic design work, Jenny tries to spend as much time as possible creating in her studio and participating in painting workshops. Her main media are watercolor and acrylics. The current focus is painting Northumberland County and beyond.
As a member of Cobourg Art Club and Spirit of the Hills, Jenny is beginning to show her work in the area. For more of Jenny’s work: www.facebook.com/jennychengburkeartist
