Meet the Artist - Jenuarrie


jenuarrie - cairns artist and author

Acclaimed Aboriginal artist Jenuarrie has been creating powerful interpretations of her cultural heritage, depicting the spiritual and philosophical symbols of Aboriginal traditions for the past 3 decades as a tribute to her ancestors and traditional cultural background of Koinjmal.

Her cultural heritage background is also in the South Pacific Islands. Contemporary themes and interpretations in the work have been produced from these connections. Respect for ‘Country’ and her spiritual connections and senses have given her the impetus to create concepts that are uniquely creative as they are meaningful.

Jenuarrie is dedicated to honoring her commitment as an Aboriginal person to pass on her knowledge through her experiences in her work career and life as an artist, printmaker and potter.
