A Western Australian artist, Jennifer’s work explores themes of memory, connection and sensory experience through the subject of landscape.
Her current work, applying the processes of painting, encaustic and mark making, sees the artist delving further into abstraction whilst retaining her connection to the terrestrial landscape.
Born in Jamaica, Jennifer completed a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education at Curtin University (formerly WA Institute of Technology) during the mid 1970s, majoring in painting and textiles. Initially an art educator, she has resumed her arts practice in recent years and has contributed to a large number of exhibitions in the last ten years. Apart from the West Indies, she spent time in Scotland as a child and has travelled extensively around Australia.

In this exhibition, through the mediums of ink, paint and wax, the artist’s examination of the celestial sphere explores the universal themes of nourishment, connection, and mysticism.
An exhibition of new landscape drawings and paintings, including a number of reclaimed chairs. These pieces have been upholstered in fabric printed with images from the paintings.
