Fifth Season Artworks

I am Jennifer from The Fifth Season Artworks. After training in textile design at the University of Technology, Sydney I became an artist almost by accident. I started the Bondi Markets in 1994 and so began my journey as an artist. My first range of work was small pastel drawings, I still remember my first sale it was a little drawing of a boy holding a surfboard for $5. All the encouragement I needed to keep going.

I have exhibited in group and solo shows, 2016 saw my first international group show at the Brick Lane Gallery in London. My work has developed from little drawings to gouache paintings on A2 paper, lino prints and canvas.

Recently I have explored oil painting and work with recycled objects. My subject matter includes local images of Canberra, south coast beaches and some Sydney scenes. I am available for commissions, examples of these include wedding invitations and gifts, book covers, people’s houses and special holiday destinations, a few (very rare) portraits and recentlly a lino print for the makers of the Boundless playground in Canberra.

I am so excited to be part of the Trove team and to exhibit my work in this beautiful space with all these talented designers.
