Jenny Sages was born in 1933 to Russian parents in Shanghai, and grew up amidst the city’s European expatriates. In her mid-teens she came with her parents to Sydney, but soon left art school there to study in New York. Having returned to Australia, for three decades she worked as an illustrator and writer of fashion and travel features for numerous magazines, including Vogue. In 1983 after a trip to the Kimberley, Sages gave up commercial art and began to concentrate on her visual arts practice full-time concentrating on both abstract and landscape works.

Along with her abstract works, Jenny has also had a long practice in painting portraits and since 1989 she has been an Archibald finalist eighteen times, and has won the Portia Geach Memorial Award for portraiture twice. During the same period she has been a finalist in the Wynne Prize for landscape thirteen times, winning in 2005 with a perspective on the work titled Road to Utopia.
