Jen Larkin has been exhibiting with The Picture House for many years now, having built a reputation for high quality oil paintings of vivid, yet delicate, sky and landscapes - her collectors will be very pleased to see the launch of this new collection!  

Jen says... 

“Paintings, to me, are like portals to the unknown - a place where the mind can rest and fly simultaneously.
