Do you remember your first art purchase?

I think it was Anthony Burrill’s ‘Work Hard & Be Nice To People’. It’s lived in five different homes in three different countries so far.

Nelly says

Hallways are a great space for the growing collection that’s running out of wall-space! We love how Jenny has matched her framing to the colour of her doorframe and staircase. Her selection of lightly-coloured artworks have ensured that her hallway feels light and isn’t overwhelmed by the dark fixture.

How would you describe your strategy in collecting art?

Is it monochrome? Does it make me happy when I look at it? Can I afford it? (I usually ignore the last one!)

What comes first, the interiors or the artwork?

I’ve always had a strong idea of how I want my home to look so I generally find the two naturally fit together. That said I did go completely against my usual palette of black, white and grey and paint my bedroom pink because it made my beloved Dan Hillier ‘Pachamama’ look even more amazing.
