Jenne’s earliest paintings where reminiscent of stained glass windows, a technique he calls “Intrinsic Illumination” which was followed by themes inspired by architectural motifs along with musicians. He paints in intense colours. Jenne favours deep contrasting hues against a shade of black to add vibrancy to the artwork, the luminescence seems to emanate from within the canvas. This style has continued throughout his career.

 

During a stay in France, he studied the works of the great masters on display within the museums of Paris, which instilled within him a new sense of artistic direction. Jenne harnessed this inspiration into his creative energy between 1995 and 2000.  Subsequently he had four solo shows and several group exhibitions in Montreal. These successes were immediately followed by a sale at Waddington’s in Toronto, and an entry into the Canadian Art Index. Between 2006 and 2008, his artworks started to gain notoriety across North America, which led to solo shows in several U.S cities. He had a successful show in New York City at the Gallery, Le Sans Souci, which led to a television interview on, The New Yorkers. In 2007, Jenne was chosen to be a part of a group exhibition in Beijing, China in conjunction with the Canadian Embassy. In 2009, the Carone winery featured one of Jenne’s paintings on the label of their limited-edition wine, Joie, which was launched at an art show at Klimantaris art gallery. By use of his art, Jenne has also been highly active in many charities. For instance, in 2010, one of Jenne works (40 x 48) procured a bid of $20,000, all proceeds went to the Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation. Around this same time Jenne co-founded Splurge art gallery in Bucerias Mexico, had two solo shows and one of his paintings graced the cover of the November issue of Bay Vallerta magazine. Jenne had the honour of taking part in the 10th year anniversary of Nuit Blanche in Montreal with an exhibition at Gallery 1507. In 2014 Jenne has collaborated on a variety of artistic projects with corporations such as Mechatronics and ABB Group.
