Jenny Handel
Cottonwood Heights, Utah

Jenny Handel’s abstract paintings imitate the tides of the ocean, coastal storms, and other natural phenomenon. Using pouring techniques, Jenny organically brings her paintings to life. The cool colors and smooth layers project a sense of calm, yet the strong, natural movement of the paint is powerful and bold. Her paintings provide the viewer an opportunity to pause and appreciate the color and composition of the work, and the natural influences they allude to. Each piece brings us up close to the drama of the ocean or sky, placing us in the center of its power, enveloping us. There is a mystical and serene quality in the work, which transfers to the surrounding space, creating a unique atmosphere with its presence.

Comments About This Piece

Lichen-like droplets flow down and across a river of black and teal. This piece was inspired by lichen and the contrasting colors that it is often found dancing upon in nature.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
