Globe Town Project Inc believes that art and creative activity offers everyone the opportunity to express themselves in their truest sense. We collaborate with highly regarded and widely recognised Australian and International artists, and work together to develop the role of the arts in supporting positive change in the community.
Jodie’s work as an artist is rich and varied – illustration, writing, sculpture, printmaking, painting, textiles, pastels, drawing and music.
She uses freely sourced materials in her work, wherever possible, strengthening her aim and belief that we can all play a part and work in harmony with our environment. Hand stitched detail and natural dyes come together with materials and imagery sourced from nature in illustrations. She experiments with salvaged rubber, cardboard, x-rays, metal and plastics as printmaking materials and recycles paper to use for her prints.
Through classes, workshops, music, public speaking and artwork, Jodie shares her thoughts and practices to encourage others to find their balance through the use of creative activity.
