Studio Visit: Jac Puntoriero

Based in Leeton New South Wales, Wiradjuri Country, Jac Puntoriero sees her practice as an intuitive and vital life force. working in acrylic paints, she translates nature, colour and life into intricate scenes of possibility.

“I invited you to my studio because it’s my favourite place to be. Created at the bottom of my garden and built with intention, it’s the space I go to take time and find connection. There is a wall of windows that look out to the garden from which I can watch the sunrise, vibrant, encaustic tiles pattern the floor and an old laundry tub, found behind a shed, now acts as a basin to wash my brushes.” – Jac Puntoriero
