'Serene' by Jaz

Usually visitors to the Cellar Door make a hasty beeline for the bar and the wine, but recently their attention has been diverted by the bright and beautiful artwork on our walls.

Local Stanthorpe artist Jaz, a busy mum of two girls, creates her bold paintings in a small studio under their home, the walls of which are filled with her pieces. Her paintings are imaginative and colourful, and most can be hung vertically or horizontally – “it’s rewarding knowing that people are able to get different views” Jaz says. She loves working with different textures, using wool, papers and unusual materials such as sand and wax.

A self taught artist, she draws inspiration from her daughters, her mood and what is happening around her at the time, ensuring each artwork is definately a one off. It sounds like Jaz inspires her daughters in return, as they both create their own little paintings for their bedrooms!

Jaz’s work can be viewed and purchased at our Cellar Door and Pure Heaven. She also has paintings in all the cabins at Happy Valley Retreat.
