Photography is always the beginning of my artwork, as I capture the colours and textures of the bush. From there, they may be enhanced as photographs, become digital art or even a fabric design.
I am a self-taught artist, working predominately in acrylics.
I have always been interested in drawing and painting, and took up folk art many years ago and from that started painting birds, mainly the magpies and parrots I have befriended.
I’m Jeanette Brown, living in rural Rokewood, Victoria. Self-taught – drawing from early childhood.
In June 2015, I had an opportunity to learn to work with Pastel – loved it, I have discovered new mediums, new papers/canvas and styles to explore.
Active craft group meeting weekly to work on a variety of hand made products from knitted socks, quilting, paper crafts etc. Many of the craft group artists will have samples of their work available for sale and to admire.
Words are a source of power and energy. I have been working over the past ten years with fineline pens to create colourful positive word mandalas. Creating these mandalas is a process of self expression and a form of meditation when words are written on a held breath.
My art journey has included watercolour, pastel, acrylic and mixed media. Experimenting in different media has culminated in my love of resin painting. My workspace looks like part science lab with mixing utensils, inks, alcohol and a propane torch but the end results are definitely artistic and creative.
My passion is creating vintage items using new and vintage fabrics, laces, trims etc. I make vintage dolls using old patterns and sell these through my Etsy shop. I have sold around Australia and overseas including America, Switzerland and UK. An American craft magazine 'Stuffed' contacted me through my shop to do a feature article with some of my handmade toys in their magazine.
