This workshop will introduce students to an unorthodox approach to painting. Be prepared to scrape, spray, throw and roll paint on your canvas and leave the brushes to last. Working with warm and cool colours as well as transparent for glazing, exploring mediums, starting with the abstract through to realism, students will be encouraged to unleash their untapped creativity without restriction. Enjoy many of Jenni’s demonstrations and individual guidance.

Jenni achieves a realistic expression in her creative freestyle painting leaving the viewer free to exercise their own imagination. These paintings have an appealing sense of colour, freedom and movement with subjects close to nature. Jenni regularly exhibits throughout Australia.

About Jenni Kelly

Jenni Kelly from an early age has shown a passion for drawing and painting. Originally from a rural town in northern Victoria Jenni has been painting professionally for many years. Her early works were in traditional oils depicting the subjects of the Gold Mining areas and she continued in this style for many years.

Family commitments saw her regularly moving and her move to far north Queensland is where she became strongly influenced by the light and colours which can be seen in her present style of painting. Her current paintings have an appealing use of colour, freedom and movement. She achieves a realistic expression in her creative style that leaves the viewer free to exercise their own imagination.
