Artist Picks: Jen Shewring

About this Curation

I have one rule for choosing art and that is to only buy art I instantly love! I once fell in love with a small painting of a horse at an exhibition, the gorgeous colours in the shadows captivated me. I went home only to rush back to buy the painting and it still brings me endless joy. I’m drawn to colourful art especially of flowers and nature because vibrant colours are uplifting and make me feel happy which is reflected in my own work. Most artists have a story to tell and it’s great to learn about their journey. Some are now making artworks using recycled materials. Others create whimsical subjects or express nostalgia or simply capture and enhance the beauty around us. I selected the artworks in this curation as I’d love to have them all on my wall. There is something that catches my eye in each piece, it may be the colour, the subject, the beautiful texture or that I admire the pure talent of the artist. Art evokes our emotions and touches different parts of our souls and minds. It has a way of making us understand the world and makes it a colourful place!

About the Curator

Jen Shewring is an Australian contemporary artist creating colourful paintings inspired by nature from her studio in Melbourne.

Currently Jen is abstracting flowers from nature utilising layering of the organic forms.
