ABOUT

Jenny Crompton lives and works on the Victorian Surf Coast.

Her art practice focuses on themes that explore the environment and indigenous culture of country.

 

Part of her process is walking the land and respectfully gathering natural materials, which allows her to reconnect, listen and interpret an essence of her culture through the making of sculpture and paintings.

 

Jenny won the Deadly Art Award at the Victorian Indigenous Art Awards (VIAA) in 2014 and was a finalist in the 2015 VIAA awards.

 

Jenny won the 2016 Lorne Sculpture Biennale, Sculpture Trail Award and the Peoples Choice Award.
