Artist of the Month Jenny Crozier’s artistic talent was evident at a very early age.

Recognising her potential, her parents enrolled her with the Parramatta Art Society where she studied tone and composition.

Her first exhibited work was shown at the age of twelve.

As an adult, Jenny worked as a ticket writer and illustrator.

Later Jenny moved to Noosa where she continued her artistic skills and won her first award.

Wishing to pass on her knowledge and passion for art, Jenny began classes for children and adults.

Over the ensuing years Jenny’s work has won a total of 100 awards, 58 of which were achieved in the Newcastle area.

Most recently her works were awarded in four categories at the Tilligerry Art Festival and 1st prize Major Award in the Raymond Terrace Art Show.

Not surprisingly, Jenny’s work is much in demand and is displayed in many private and corporate collections in Australia and overseas.

Jenny’s philosophy towards art is “Always paint with a sense”.
