About the Artist

Mostly self-taught, Jessica has experimented with various art forms throughout her life though she has always favoured painting.

She now mainly paints with acrylics using palettes knifes, paintbrushes and her own fingers.

March exhibition Soon to be Forgotten

As an artist, Jessica believes she can engage people and offer them an opportunity to reflect on the state of the world. For this reason, she often paints animals and landscapes. As well as impactful events such as the Australia bush fires, or the Covid-19 pandemic.

Jessica’s passion to this cause does not stop there. Jessica has made a commitment to donate half of her profits from this show to the World Wildlife Fund in an effort to help endangered animals around the world. Let’s help Jessica send a message regarding these endangered wildlife species. Come and see the interesting March exhibition Soon to be Forgotten, by Jessica McKenzie.
