Jenny was a founding member and for 4+ years was a Director at HERE+NOW (2014-2019), a not-for-profit landscape architecture and design studio based in Scotland. HERE+NOW specialises in a human-centred approach to design for the built environment. This includes use of innovative methods for design and engagement, in addition to the use of film, photography, events and exhibitions to curate and publicise learnings from the design and engagement process and spread best practice. 

Jenny has lead or co-founded a number of projects relating to realising the potential of place. Through curated projects such as Hold Me Dear and Secret Cinema, Jenny enjoys developing innovative approaches to share our personal experiences of place with one another through photography, film, participatory talks, events and exhibitions.  She has exhibited her photography and film work at a number of exhibitions in London, Edinburgh, Copenhagen, and Melbourne, Australia.
