“Outside in the natural environment is where I am most comfortable. Sketching the organic forms that surround me, I take them back to my studio where I abstract the beauty and vibrancy of the experience into my paintings.
My work is to make something beautiful. I am passionate about protecting and preserving our environment in its natural state and in all its beauty.”
Jen Shewring is an Australian contemporary artist creating colourful paintings inspired by nature from her studio in Melbourne.
‘My paintings bring the outdoors inside and are intended to give joy and happiness from connecting with nature’.
Taking a semi-abstract impressionist approach, Jen chooses colour palettes carefully, aiming to either enhance the feelings of joy with bright hues or create a tranquil, meditative space with earth tones. Her canvases often start out with a charcoal base before she adds her optimistic emotional response and interpretation of nature on top.
‘The deep charcoal backgrounds reflect the emotion I feel when we as humans choose to wreak havoc on our environment, this is in juxtaposition to the beauty of the flowers and organic life that we must preserve. For me, it is important that my art should tell a story and bring pleasure to connect with the viewer so that it’s both enjoyed and highlights the need protect our planet’.
‘My work is to make something beautiful. I am passionate about protecting and preserving our environment in its natural state and in all its beauty.’
