My Painting practice, since moving to Tasmania in 2007, is greatly influenced by the fact that I live beside a large body of ever-changing water, the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.
My practice involves painting with oil and wax medium on canvas, also works on paper with water colour and mixed media.
The water of the Channel has metaphorically seeped (and sometimes flooded) into my work. I enjoy being able to create luscious images of water (sometimes abstracted) and then overlay the water imagery with drawings and textures that playfully allude to my memories, longings and desires. – Jan Jefferys
