Cox, Jenny – American Outsider Artist

Jenny Cox (American, born 1959)

Jenny Cox began working at Lower Merion Vocational Training Center in 1981 as a piece worker and paper shredder. When it became the Center for Creative Works in 2011, the work of her peers inspired her to paint. When Cox discovered markers and pens that her work truly took off. Marks developed into letters, letters into words, and colored cells ordered and demarcated space in compositions that are uniquely Cox’s. Her work has been represented by Fleisher/Ollman gallery both in Philadelphia and at the Outsider Art Fair in New York City since 2017.
