Jenni Ahrens

Jenni Ahrens’s art revolves around the quirks and delights of language, drawing her inspiration from everyday life and nature. She creates delicate and detailed illustrations combining both text and image, mainly focusing on the aspects of being a foreigner in a foreign country. Ahrens also looks into the identity problems caused by juggling between two different languages and how her view has changed towards her home country Finland while living in the UK for a few years. She is fascinated by the process of making, oftentimes adopting time-consuming techniques where the process itself is more important than the end product.
