Jemma Roberts is a Sydney based artist who works across a variety of mediums – including
drawing, collage, painting and printmaking. Drawing and creating are a constant, integral to
observation and recording. Jemma has always drawn and created – and through her initial
experience and background as an Early Childhood Educator, she recognised the importance
of play. This influenced her art teaching and practice encouraging students – to experiment
and enjoy the process of making art. Jemma is a full time practicing artist, and teacher of
abstract drawing and painting techniques for adults at Ku Ring Gai Arts Centre. She has been
a teacher for the last forty years, and teaching art for the last twenty.
Her work is based in response to nature – emotional and spiritual reflection - one seasons
work finds itself in the next as in nature. Interacting and dependant on each other.
