Artist: Jenna Lee

Jenna Lee is a mixed-race Larrakia, Wardaman and Karajarri, Asian (Japanese, Chinese, Filipino) and Anglo Australian woman whose artistic practice uses paper, painting, projection, found objects, books and the written word to explore her identity, culture and childhood memories. Children can join Jenna in fun art-making activities inspired by her artwork and NGV exhibition Big Weather.
