Jennifer Baird.

I have been painting for over twenty years. I began my journey at Bondi Beach markets selling my first drawing for $5, a pastel sketch of a boy holding a surfboard, I nearly fell over and it was all I needed to continue.

Recently I picked up my oil paints after a long break. They are so liberating to my art practice.  I also enjoy workng with found and recycled objects, lino printing and drawing. 

My subjects are seascapes and landscapes. The Australian coast and bush are a contstant source of inspiration for me. I enjoy the challenge of painting different weather conditions and light, especially rain and night scenes.

Being an artist is everything to me, it's what I'm meant to be doing and when everything is else is crazy, I can find a constant in my art.

2016 saw my first international group exhibition held at the Brick Lane Gallery in London.

June 2016 I was the joint winner of the inaugural Sheridan Evans Art Award for artwork relating to Ocean Pools, with my lino print, 'Pools of Sydney'.

July 2016 I was shortlisted for the Brisbane Art Prize, for my work 'Unfolding' a collage of unfolded origami on canvas. 

September 2016 shorlisted for the 30 × 30 Colourtrap gallery exhibition for my work 'Clareville'.

2016 - Selected for the Belconnen Arts Centre 'Traces' exhibition for my work 'My Table'.

2016 - Finalist in the 'Artbox Projects' Miami Artfair,for my work 'Sunrise'.

2017 - Finalist in 'Now' the Shoalhaven Contemporary Art Prize. 

2017 - Finalist in the Waverley Art Prize 2017.
