Jennie’s art practice is a based on an exploration of experiential based knowledge of phenomena and the sublime. She is fascinated that reality can only be known through the subjective experience of the exterior environment through an individual’s senses.  This has led to an on-going investigation into the cognitive processes of perception, memory and understanding.

Jennie combines elements of photography, drawing and sculpture together into her artworks. She combines two dimensional lines and patterns with three dimensional forms based on paper engineering techniques, the theory of which transfers readily into other sculptural mediums such as steel or cast ceramic forms.

Over the past 20 years she has regularly exhibited in solo and group shows nationally and has developed her art practice to encompass wide range of mediums. Jennie’s work is included in a large number of state and national collections including Artbank, the State Library of Queensland and Parliament House in Canberra. Since 2010 Jennie has worked predominately in the area of public art and has won sixteen major public artwork commissions in various locations across the Western Australia.
