TOAF Melbourne Q + A: Jennifer Webb

OCEANS, FIGURES AND CITY SKYLINES ARE TRANSFORMED INTO DUSKY, ETHEREAL LANDSCAPES BY ARTIST JENNIFER WEBB, WHOSE SKILL IS NOT LIMITED TO ANY ONE MEDIUM.

Are there any themes that emerge in your practice?

I have three main long-term series – inspired by the ocean, city skylines and figures – and I employ a unique process and approach with each. Over several decades I have developed skills and processes within many practical painting approaches, including with media such as watercolours, oils, collage and acrylics.

What is your studio like?

I am the principal artist-in-residence at Port Art Facility in Port Melbourne and I also use my home studio. The Port Art studio is actually two studios, also used for teaching. It is packed to the rafters with materials, easels and equipment. It looks different every day.

When do you feel your most creative?

I don’t believe there are many instances when I don’t feel creative, but in general I let loose more when I am fully alone with no administrative tasks looming.

Where can people find your work?

My original artworks are sold at Port Art Gallery in Melbourne, Red Hill Gallery in Brisbane, on my website, and at various art fairs and shows.
