Rotary Club of Forest Hill

Jenny‚Äôs Cards stall has been a regular feature of our Saturday Blackburn Market for over 9 years.   Jenny, a Box Hill resident, sells her own original hand painted cards in a range of sizes and her hand painted water colour framed paintings.   The cards are 2 for $7 and 3 for $6 depending on the size and the framed paintings range from $18 to $70.   Jenny also sells papercraft cards which uses lots of recycled materials like cloth offcuts and chocolate wrappers and sells kits for $2.50 containing some cards and loads of cutouts so children can make their own cards.   

She started painting 12 years ago as a therapy because of her depression without showing any prior artistic skill and soon showed a great aptitude for water colours.   She has been taking lessons until recently (as you can see from her skills, she should be giving lessons!).   Jenny only attends one other market a month, the East Ringwood Community market on the 1st Saturday of the month.   She told me that last year she sold 1,200 cards and 59 paintings.   We would suggest you look her up next time you attend the Blackburn Market.   Her cards and paintings are seriously good and very well priced.
