We at KDTY Gallery are thrilled to collaborate with local artists & be a medium to showcase their work through our Pop-Up Gallery in The Strand, Coolangatta.
We are excited to collaborate with Jenny McConnell an artist from Kingscliff, NSW. We not only showcase her work but together we also conduct Art Workshops to bring the Coolangatta community together & have fun.
“I love creating, it energies me. Over the years I have developed work in a range of media but predominately in mixed media and assemblage especially working with images or materials that hold a nostalgic significance.
Being time poor a lot of my early work focused on significant people in my life a a tribute to them and often as my means for dealing with their loss. I have always been fascinated by early Byzantine art and in particular iconic images of the Madonna. I have been surrounded by strong women and done my best to produce a few of my own, much of my early work has always has a focus on women for this reason.
Over time I have broadened the media I work with and moved into jewellery as I view this as affordable wearable art, mini sculptures if you like, that more people can access and enjoy.
More recently I have been developing my Art through the medium of paint, inspired by the beautiful landscape that we live in.
Enjoy your art work and thank you for supporting local Artist.”
