Jenie grew up living and working on her parents sheep and cattle property in Central Western Queensland. She attended primary school at the small local school and then completed her high school education boarding at Brisbane Girls Grammar School. Jenie then studied full time at The Queensland Colledge of Art and graduated in 1990 with a degree in Fine Art (majoring in printmaking and minoring in painting). Jenie practised art part time for many years while travelling, working, marrying, helping her husband run their cattle property and bringing up 4 children. In 2016 Jenie and her family moved to a little farm in the Darling Downs Region on the Great Dividing Range. Jenie is now a full time artist practising from her new studio and home based near Hampton North of Toowoomba Qld. Jenie paints and screen prints with a colour palette "in tune with the subtle and ever changing seasonal landscape around her". A creative and rural upbringing has created an ongoing fixation with the colour, composition and natural beauty of the Australian Landscape.
"To take a simple or insignificant scene from my natural surroundings and present it artistically in a way that gives it relevance and appeal teaches me to stop and appreciate every little aspect of nature. My joy is in the creativity.....my endeavour is to share it."
