The urge to create has been incredibly strong since Jayde Chandler was a child. She draws inspiration from her physical surrounds and childhood memories. “Each piece tells a story of a place I have lived in or have visited and loved.  From a shaded, gum lined gully at the back of the property to the hinterland of Byron Bay I try to capture the feeling associated to a place more than its physical representation.”

Based in Central Western Queensland near the small town of Barcaldine, Jayde lives with her husband and four children on a sheep and cattle property.  Jayde has taken her deep connection with Australia’s sometimes harsh, but incredibly beautiful, landscape and combined it with her passion for bold, joyous colour.  The result is her own interpretation of this narrative, that being multilayered and textural abstract expressions.

With a focus on how imperfection paradoxically creates perfection, Jayde endeavors to highlight every undulation using a combination of resources including palette knives, brush strokes, and the tactility of her fingers.  At the centre of every piece is her own visceral expression of her surroundings, with the aim of sparking joy in the viewer.
