About Wendy Jagger
Surrounded by the beautiful and sometimes austere alpine environment of Victoria’s North East, my studio looks directly to Mt Buller. My work is strongly influenced by seasonal landscapes and native Australian flora. Photographs and drawings taken from the field are developed in the studio in a range of painting media and translucent porcelain. I revel in painting ‘en plein air’, amidst the landscape and trying to capture the effect it has on me. My preferred media when painting en plein air are gouache and oils. In the painting workshops that I run, I encourage my students to experiment with the paint and to learn to look ‘into’ the landscape, to pick out the myriad colors and shapes.
My paintings and ceramics are held in several collections, both private and public around Australia and internationally. My porcelain vessels have also been given as ministerial and corporate gifts on numerous occasions. I am currently a finalist in the Muswellbrook Art Prize and have been a finalist in numerous contemporary art prizes around Australia and Japan.
