I am a self-taught emerging artist based in Clarendon. My work is in several private collections around Australia, and I had my first solo show in Ballarat's Unicorn Lane in 2017. I create to reveal everyday beauty, to tell stories about women and their bodies, and to celebrate flights of the ordinary.

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.

I specialise in limestone but also calve many different types of stone,I began calving limestone over ten years ago and haven't looked back.
Its a medium I just love working with, starting with a ordinary block and finishing with a sculpture that slowly evolves in to a work of art.

Jen studied pastel art with Jill Shalless at Shearers Arms Gallery in Geelong for approximately four years and she has recently set up her own home studio. Jen runs pastel classes from the studio and loves teaching this art medium as it is very forgiving and flexible.
