Triptych – Jennie Gardner







‘Triptych’ is a reflection on an individual’s understanding of the divine, and the way this is experienced. The content is autobiographical, and tells the story of a ‘breaking down’, followed by a ‘breaking through’ and a ‘breaking in’.




Jennie Gardner lives, works, writes and sings in Edinburgh. Focusing on poetry, her writing is inspired by our human instinct for story-telling and the transformative power that stories have.
