Jenine is a Yaggerah Aboriginal woman from the South East Queensland area known as Meeanjin (Brisbane) - which means ‘place shaped like a spike’. She grew up around the inner and outer suburbs of the Maiwar - Brisbane River. The Yaggerah/Jagera and Turrbal people were the principal clans, with the Yaggerah/Jagera to the south of the Brisbane River and Turrbal north.
Now Healesville-based since 2014, her work is from the heart. Jenine loves creating works with the earth tones of our Country, depicting the colours of our flora and fauna. Inspiration is from her cultural background, as well as her passion for architecture – both natural and man-made.
