StAnza 2007

Resident Visual Artist

Among the guests for this year's StAnza was Scottish artist/illustrator Jenny Soep who captured some of the hilights in her own unique style.  Jenny specialises in making spontaneous drawings of live and unique events, focusing in particular on poetry and music.
Providing a whole new approach to documenting the experience, Jenny draws on location while the events unfold in front of, beside and all round her.
The images she creates are dynamic, alive and vivify the ambience whilst evoking a true sense of the event. Jenny's images have been used in various editorials, books, websites, blogs, promotional material and exhibitions. She was also featured on the first Janice Forsyth show of this year where the pictures are still available to view on Janice's web page.To view more of Jenny's work visit   Limited edition mounted signed prints of Jenny's StAnza illustrations are available for sale.
