Originally from New Zealand, Printmaker, Painter Jennifer Jokhoo works from her home
studio in the Surrey Hills. She studied Fine Art and majored in Painting/Printmaking at
Canterbury University School of Fine Arts in Christchurch, New Zealand. In 1998 she went on
to complete a Diploma in Secondary Teaching. Since qualifying she has followed a career in
Art education and has taught in New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom.
In 2012 she was elected a member of Greenwich printmakers association. Then in May
2016, she was elected an associate member of the Society of Graphic and Fine Arts and
received the ‘Associate’s award’ for her print ‘Summer Harvest’ at the Draw 2017 exhibition.
Her work is exhibited widely across the South East in many galleries and is held in private
collections in the UK, New Zealand, Mauritius, Australia, USA and Canada.
Upon moving to the Surrey hills in 2014, Jennifer’s interest shifted from architectural
landscapes, to areas that are closer to home. Hillside views, fields, wide skies and horizontal
bands are elements that are visited and revisited in her Reduction linocut prints. The
creative process requires intricate cutting and layering of colour which takes place over
Each reduction linocut is produced by hand; from the initial drawings, to the intricate
cutting, inking and printing of editions. As a result Jennifer’s editions are kept very small.
Jennifer works in relief and intaglio methods, however her preferred printmaking technique
is ‘Reduction linoprinting’ otherwise known as the suicide method!
In this method, a multi coloured print is pulled from a single block. The lino is inked with
the lightest colour and the first printing is made. The areas to remain that colour are then
cut away. This is the process for each layer, therefore it cannot be rewound or repeated. As
a result Jennifer’s editions are kept very small.
Her linocuts are drawn and cut by hand and her preferred inks are oil-based due to the vivid
colours that can be achieved. They are also more agreeable with colour mixing.
Jennifer enjoys the challenges of this method which requires thoughtful planning and
execution. At the same time, it enables a certain degree of flexibility as the concept she
begins with is never set in stone. The print evolves and changes shape during the process.
She constantly responds to what the work needs rather than being restricted by
