about Barbara Rita Jenny.

Barbara Rita Jenny is a digital media artist and educator. She transforms brain microscopy and macroscopic photographs of human flesh into ornate pattern by applying complex geometrical equations. Finished products take various forms, from traditional wall hung prints, to projected images and immersive installations, to large scale laser-cut reliefs.

Barbara Rita is a recipient of numerous awards and grants, including the coveted NH Charitable Foundation’s Artists Advancement Grant. She is also on the roster of New Hampshire State Arts Fellows.

Jenny is an arts and community advocate, having served on the city’s first Blue Ribbon Committee for Arts & Culture, co-founding the Islington Creek Neighborhood Association, and coordinating the Rock Street Park stage project—one of the first community art projects in Portsmouth. In 2009, Jenny established an artists residency program in Nova Scotia to support artists from Maine College of Art (MECA).
