Jessamy Gee

Artist in Residence

Original portrait artist, pavement artist and cartoonist, Jessamy Gee creates her works on canvas, paper and recycled material.

Buzzing with her signature style of bright colours, wide strokes and tongue-in-cheek humour, these original artworks are widely appealing and don’t take themselves too seriously – reflecting Jessamy’s belief that art should be available to and enjoyed by everyone.

Working mainly in portraiture, Jessamy creates portraits by commission that aim to capture the essence, personality and mood of the subject and express this creatively through her works.

Exhibiting since 2005, Jessamy has taken part in numerous group and solo exhibitions, as well as study drawing and portraiture, contemporary painting techniques and art therapy at Box Hill Institute of TAFE, Victorian College of the Arts, and La Trobe University respectively.

Since 2010, Jessamy has run creative corporate workshops to enhance self-esteem, stress release, team building, communication and employee satisfaction through visual art. Clients have included General Mills Australia, NAB and Origin Energy.

Jessamy has also taken part in a variety of community-based work, in particular working with groups of young people with diverse abilities or mental illness, and strives to continue promoting equality, respect and inclusion for these groups through creative programmes
