Growing up in the Bedfordshire countryside, as a child Jennifer Hogwood was surrounded by rolling fields, spending much of her time outdoors and so animals have always been a huge part of her life. Always creative, even as a young girl, she loved painting and with no formal art training, having painted all her life, Jennifer is essentially a self-taught artist.
Jennifer's wonderful highland cows have affectionately become known as ‘The McMoos’ and these delightful bovine buddies are instantly recognisable to collectors and alike. Jennifer has even created her own unique shade of brown, which she uses for every new McMoo masterpiece! She always starts with the nose first and works out from there, building layers of paint and detail quickly to build up a richness of texture and colour.
Her limited edition prints are hand embellished, adding sparkle to the McMoos eyes with tiny little jewels - adorable!
