This years judge Jessie Beard is an emerging abstract expressionist and abstract landscape painter.

Her work observes nature, with an accentuation on colour and

movement. The process begins on location, immersing into her surroundings,

taking photos and storing what the senses are experiencing. Jessie uses

abstraction to depict and reconnect with the place and the associated fleeting

memories and emotions. Numerous layers and patterns are used to portray the

depth, intricacies and stories within nature and present an appreciation of the

natural world in euphoric interpretations.

Jessie has an Associate Degree of Creative Arts & Design

(Distinction) from Charles Sturt University

and a Diploma of Visual Arts (Distinction) from Great Lakes TAFE.
