Grade 12 student Jemma Denigan has had a fascination with the arts since she was a child, starting with drawings before eventually experimenting and moving onto oil paintings. 

Jemma has received multiple schoolbased awards for her artworks and is excited to host her first ever exhibition, a crucial step on her journey to realising her dream of become an artist.

“I loved to draw, and I started exploring painting a couple of years ago,” she said.

“My art is like stylised fantasy, I love to explore imaginative scapes.” 

The exhibition will officially open on 1 September and run until 30 September, seven days a week from 10am to 2pm at Mareeba’s Centenary Park. 

Jemma is incredibly thankful to the Mareeba Arts Society who offered to host her art and is still deliberating on a meet the artist event during her exhibition.
