Jenny Fidler

I’ve always had a love for Art, which started in my early childhood years with chalk drawings on just about anything, concrete pathways, walls no flat surface was safe. It wasn’t until my senior years at high school when I discovered oil paints that I realised that painting was going to play such a big part in my life.  I started with landscapes and seascapes around the Gold Coast, however with no formal training I relied on the techniques of…

Artist Statement I am a Queensland based artist who draws on nature, the human form and sense of place as inspiration for my artworks. I enjoy working across a wide range of mediums including watercolour, pastel, oil and pencil. My love of flowers is evident in many of my artworks.

As a child growing up in Queensland, I enjoyed drawing birds and various animals so I guess the desire to do something artistic has always existed within me.

I do hope you are able to experience the multi sensory experience I try to achieve in my painting. I began painting in 1980 studying with various tutors over the years in colour…

“I don’t know in advance what I am going to put on canvas any more than I decide beforehand what colours I am going to use.” Pablo Picasso Picasso’s statement very much reflects the way I approach my art practise. I prefer to start with an initial mark or stroke of colour and paint intuitively allowing the painting to develop as the layers are applied. The physicality and tactile properties of multi layered paint and mixed media in the pure…
