Exhibitions

Though she has painted throughout her life, Jeroo only began exhibiting her work in 2000. Since then her work has featured in many solo and group exhibitions across the UK, including the Nehru Centre in London and at the National Portrait Gallery in 2007, when her portrait of 208 individual women was exhibited.

Jeroo’s work has also featured at a number of exhibitions in support of charities, such as Amnesty International, who in 2005 exhibited her work alongside those of Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry at their “Imagine a World” exhibition at London’s OXO Tower, and the Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation (IKWRO) who in 2014 invited Jeroo to join other artists in exhibiting at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict held at London’s ExCeL centre.

Supporting Charitable Causes

With the issues of honour based violence, female genital mutilation, child exploitation and the persecution of minorities so close to her heart and depicted in her work, Jeroo has supported charities such as Amnesty International, the Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation (IKWRO), Oxford Against Cutting and government organisations such as New Scotland Yard in the UK and Kvinnoforum in Sweden.

This support has varied from exhibitions at international conferences to providing artwork for use in printed materials and holding art classes for children.

Art Sessions with Young people

Jeroo has led many art sessions with young people, encouraging them to express their own personal feelings and beliefs through the medium of art. Many of these sessions have taken place at the ASHA Centre in Gloucester, an educational hub established by Zerbanoo Gifford for young people from across the world to gather and meet. Other sessions have taken place in the London boroughs of Islington and Tower Hamlets.
