Jayne Henderson has had a long association with the bay. Melbourne born, she spent many holidays at Mount Eliza,where, as a child she started to paint scenes of beach and promontory. You will notice in her mature paintings, not only the love of bayside subject matter, but also an attention to detail as well as the determination to portray it as it is …realistically .
This character is enhanced by a high key palette which makes her work distinctive and instantly recognisable. Her style is strong and vigorous, showing the influence of the Australian impressionists she so admires. Collectors of her work appreciate and admire the exactness of her tonal values.
