My name is Kadira Jennings. I was born in New Zealand and emigrated to Australia in 1981, although I frequently return to NZ as I find much inspiration there. 
I currently reside on the Central Coast of NSW one hours drive north of Sydney.
My work is my homage to Mother Nature. 
In this way, I want to share with others, the magic and mystery I have discovered in nature.
My story is one of the unconditional love I have for the ancient lands I have had the privilege to be present in.  My language is visual. It tells tales of the connection and bond to the land we travel. Through my art, I feel like I am the caretaker of such places. It is my honour and responsibility to bring this beauty and understanding to others, to offer them a vision of ‘the quiet beauty and silence of spaces’.

There is a timeless, spiritual, connectedness that I experience within the beauty of natural forms and their presence. It is an essence which I bring to the world through my work.
The distillation of this natural energy manifests as a quiet stillness, a magical mysteriousness that expresses the inner beauty and connection to nature and place that is found as a consistent theme throughout my work. The paintings decode the ‘silence in the spaces’ that I discover there.
