Get arty with annual exhibition

JACQUIE Hendersen, who has lived in the Whitsundays for the past 15 years, started painting just six years ago when she was inspired by the beauty of the area and particularly the islands.

Wanting to take her art to a new level, she has been attending drawing lessons and workshops.

Jacquie said her goal now was to take what she had learned and try to develop her own style.

She explained that to create her artworks, she liked to take photos of a subject and then add other subject matter to create a story.

"I think, as artists, we have an opportunity to get a message out through our paintings," she said.

"I'm focusing on the environment with a subtle message of protecting it.

Jacquie has been a member of Art Whitsunday for the past four years and looks forward to displaying her new artworks in the Art Whitsunday annual exhibition from August 5-7 at the Whitsunday Arts and Cultural Centre (WACC).
