Jassy is a Contemporary Australian artist living in regional Bundaberg, Queensland. While formally trained in the arts, Jassy has developed her own way of working through her many years of creative practice and exploration. This has led to her creating unique images that are essentially born from close observation of both inner and outer landscapes.
Jassy works primarily in acrylic and mixed media and more recently has returned to oils has her preferred medium. Many of her bold and vibrant paintings are created by building up layers of marks and shapes until an image and story emerges while other pieces are planned, drawing inspiration from scenes of everyday life; from the ever-changing landscape of the Bundaberg region to tropical Bali and even her own backyard. Jassy often explores ecological and ancestral themes in her works. Her latest series of paintings 'The Sacred & Mundane: Scenes of the Everyday' is currently on display at Hervey Bay Regional Gallery.
Jassy's paintings have been sold and sent worldwide, exhibited in numerous shows nationally, and featured in a number of international online and in-text publications. She has been a selected finalist for a number of Queensland Art Awards and From Earth Circle Studios, Jassy works as a full-time artist and Intentional Creativity® Teacher offering classes with various artistic approaches.
Jassy is involved in numerous community arts initiatives, having hosted and curated group exhibits as part of national Earth Arts programs, participating in local arts projects including funded public art installations and more recently having been accepted into a Queensland Regional Arts Mentorship with QRASN.
Jassy is also the owner/operator of a small Gallery currently moving to Bargara Beach Queensland. As an advocate for women in the arts, here she not only showcases her work but also that of other profiled local women artists.
