Now living in England, Newman was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1961.
Newman studied ceramics and Sculpture at the Witwatersrand Technikon in Johannesburg. She has been greatly influenced by the journeys she has made both living and working in many countries abroad. The study of clay has influenced the use of surface and texture, using natural earth pigments, minerals, oil paints and patinated silver leaf. The resin element creates a contrast between dynamic earth and water.
Jennifer Newman’s work has been exhibited internationally and bought by Private collectors, Luxury Hotels, cruise liners, Super yachts, Embassies, and professional/corporate establishments worldwide.
All publicly exhibited work by Newman is only available exclusively from Beumée Contemporary Fine Art.
"The iconic shape of The Thames is a timeless reminder of the power of London and it’s remarkable history. The river holds centuries of memories with the ebb and flow of the tides leading out into the ocean. Using minerals, salt, precious metals and oil paints - these elements are all trapped under the watery quality of the resin."
