About

Art has always played a role in Jennifer’s life. In the past, she has worked with oils, watercolour, coloured pencils, acrylic, gouache and charcoal. Everything that she has learned throughout her journey in art, has informed another passion, printmaking.

Her first experience with printmaking was at Sturt Workshop at Mittagong in a week long course. Since then, she has experimented with printmaking of different types- collagraphs, linocuts, drypoints, photo polymer/aluminium/zinc plate etchings. Jennifer loves working with multicultural themes- Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Balinese, Turkish, Indian…

Life drawing and drawing from nature are also being explored. There are many artists who find one medium or one technique or one subject that they remain faithful to. I'm excited by and interested in every art experience. No matter how varied my work is, there is always detailed observation depth of thought. I love the variety that the world offers. I seek satisfaction, fulfilment and calm from my exploration of art.

Alongside Jennifer’s career in teaching, she has always nurtured a strong link with art, illustrating educational resources. She has exhibited and sold her work in various art shows and competitions (including the Gosford, Blacktown, Northbridge, Hunters Hill and Hornsby art prizes) and in galleries in and outside Sydney. Within the past several years, she continues to receive recognition in the Ku-Ring-Gai Art Society’s Annual Awards, in the Australian Miniature Art Society’s awards, the Ryde Art Society Exhibition, the Waterbrook Art exhibition and the Hunters Hill Art prize. An etching, ‘The Dragon Stirs’, was a finalist in the Combined Art Society’s awards at the Maritime Museum in Sydney. A framed collagraph plate won the Waterbrook small works prize in 2016 as well as being commended in the Hunters Hill Exhibition.
Again this year, Jennifer participated in the World Miniatures awards in South Africa. She was awarded one of the fourteen ‘Awards of Excellence’.
