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. The urge to create has been incredibly strong since Jayde was a child and she draws inspiration from her physical surrounds and childhood memories.
“I have taken my deep love and connection to our sometimes harsh but incredibly beautiful land and combined it with my passion for bold and joyous colour. The result is my translation in multilayered, textural works of abstract expressionism.”
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.
Focusing on the perfection of imperfections Jayde loves to highlight every lump and bump through the use of a combination of palette knives and brushes and at times, even her fingers. With each raw and expressive piece she aims to spark joyful emotion.
