My name is Jaz. I’m an artist / illustrator / photographer based in Perthshire, Scotland. I’m from The Clarence Valley in NSW, Australia, and love the beach and being outdoors. I have a passion for making art accessible, with and for the local community, and jump at any opportunity to give back.
I run youth based art workshops using both traditional and non traditional mediums, showing young people that through art they have a voice and can be heard.
My work explores themes of cultural identity and is rooted in both the current social and political climates. I look to create accessible art, and work with both mediums and canvas that deliver a message quickly and easily. Whether it be a spray can in the streets or a detailed painterly piece, I look to play with traditional practices and their inferred meanings.
