A superb example from the artist's series of paintings depicting cattle from her grandfather's herd in the Alde Valley, Suffolk. The handling of the paint shows the influence of her mentor, Maggi Hambling.
A student of Maggi Hambling since she was 16, Jelly has exhibited her work in Suffolk, Cambridge and London. In 2009 she was selected as a Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) Scholar. Recently, she exhibited at the Oxo Tower Gallery, London with an exhibition Devour which highlighted the plight of the Brazilian rainforests and raised funds for their protection.
