ABOUT THE ARTIST
Excerpt from article by Alana Gogic
Jemma Roberts is an Australian artist who began her career in Early Childhood and then progressed to a Fine Arts degree at COFA in 1985. Continuing her passion for education and the arts, Jemma Roberts went on to finish a Fine Arts course at TAFE in 2009 – 2012.
Jemma Roberts comments: "My art practice centres around the place, memory, nature, and our environment. My art relates to and is drawn from life, but I want my work to have life, energy & joy that expresses some of what I experience daily with all its marvellous beauty & struggle".
Jemma Roberts is currently teaching Drawing and Mixed Media at Kuringai Arts Centre and has been teaching for 40 years, 20 of those years teaching art to children and adults.
"I became an Early Childhood teacher & was very influenced by the theories of learning about play and experimentation, and exploration was how you learned and a way of encouraging children's learning and growth".
