Jenette Coldrick Morrell

Jenette Coldrick Morrell has been been a compulsive artist and potter for over 50 years.

Born in Cornwall in 1952, she was inspired by the artists she met as a child, who encouraged her to watch and participate in the creative process.

Working from her studios in Yorkshire, the Midlands and the South West, Jenette uses her work to explore her emotions, memory and the environment and fills her work with the excitement she feels for life. Over the years she has experimented with and embraced many different mediums. Finding simpler ways of working (Spinal stenosis), has enhanced the character of her work.

The first artist Jenette met when she was seven years old was, Isobel Atterbury Heath (1908-1989). She encouraged Jenette take up a career in art as she watched Isobel painting wild flowers in a vase. She told Jenette," Yes you are an artist, don't let people tell you otherwise,"

Jenette studied at the Ulster College of Art and Design in Belfast. One of the most progressive art establishments in the 1970's. She was tutored in painting by Niel Shawcross and pottery by David Leech, who taught her so much about hand building.
