" My own memories of holidays at a family bach are still a great influence on the images I paint. My most recent work incorporates nautical references and charts which capture the essence of something that is typically New Zealand and reminiscent of a time spent in a particular area. New Zealand flora and fauna, fish and native birds feature strongly. I work predominantly in acrylic and pencil.”
Jenna was born in Auckland but grew up on the coast of Western Australia, before completing her Bachelor of Arts in Photography at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, NSW.
“My work is concerned primarily with the fundamental nature of being, and its relationship to space, place, time, cause and effect, and possibility. By abstracting and obscuring the subject in different ways, I encourage viewers of my work to see through or even beyond the subject, rather than just look at it.”
