Jenny McNamara-Furlong

I am a Brisbane based artist and studied at Queensland College of Art and completed a Diploma of Art and Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Graphic Design. I have always produced art for myself and family and my art practices always came second to my graphic design and teaching career until I changed my focus in 2000.

My design background influences my style of rendering with the use of bold graphic images and colours. I use my design skills to interpret the content of my photographs, and simplify the images and colours to create my work.

I have experimented with various art processes and mark making techniques and been involved in and exposed to a variety of art practices. Combining techniques I have used previously with these new experiences, my artwork has evolved and I believe I have added depth and substance to my current body of work.
