About the Artist

A Brief History

Jodie Wells has exhibited extensively around Australia since 2007. In that time, she has held a number of solo exhibitions and her work has been selected as a finalist in many of Australia’s top art prizes, including the Duke Prize in 2011. Jodie’s paintings are held in the Gold Coast Regional Art Gallery collection, as well as in private collections around Australia and England.
Jodie manages to capture her images in what is perceived to be minimal broad strokes of paint, spread with a palette knife. Her richly textured style combined with a dramatic colour palette creates vivid interpretations of nature.
