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.
