Jen is an Australian mixed media artist and highly sought after instructor. Her art is truly unique, incorporating many a found object, vintage ephemera, metal she has herself etched, resin and much more. With a true eye for detail and the ability to see past a rusty bit of metal, Jen is able to create assemblage pieces, tiny books and jewellery from this assortment of pieces she collects.
Jen’s career has now taken her abroad where she realised her dream of becoming an internationally recognised artist and began teaching at the Art n Soul retreats. Her work has been published in a number of Stampington’s magazine publications. Jen also was one of the 31 featured artists in Seth Apters The pulse of mixed media: secrets and passions of 100 artists
Jen’s pieces conjure up images of times gone by …. which is the apt name of her blog A Mark in Time. www.amarkintime.blogspot.com.au
CONVERSATION WITH THE MAKER(CWTM)Did you always envision a life as an artist?
JENNY CROSSLEY(JC)I never envisioned my life as an artist at all I knew I was creative, but it seemed like a pipe dream to ever think I could be an artist I still wrestle with this. I think of an artist as having a master in art at Uni.
