About Jacinta Payne

I am a Melbourne based artist who aims to tread as lightly as I possibly can on our beautiful planet.  I am endlessly inspired by nature and I hope my art can bring joy while raising an awareness of the need to protect the earth as best we can.  

While my roots are in traditional art, it is in the process of abstraction that I feel most connected with my purpose. I like to experiment with different techniques and utensils to apply paint, and often I ditch the tools and use my hands to apply medium, which further connects me with the painting.

My art practice began during a childhood spent in the bush, growing up on the edge of Morton National Park in the Southern Highlands of NSW. Collecting rocks, bark and leaves, spending countless hours immersed in nature. Absorbing knowledge from the collective creativity of my family, observing my Dad painting landscapes, seascapes, & still-life and my brother painting Australian birds & wildlife, inspired in me an inevitable passion for making art.

Thanks for your interest in my art.
