Darwin based artist Winsome Jobling works primarily with handmade paper and experimental printmaking as well as sculpture and drawing. She uses many local plants to make her paper such as Spear Grass, Banyan Fig and the declared weed Gamba Grass. Her work is a haptic collaboration with the natural world and a response to our impact on it. Recent works explore the impacts of bushfires and climate change on the Top End Savannah.
She has exhibited regularly in Darwin and in 2016 the Museum & Art Gallery of the NT held the survey show Winsome Jobling; the Nature of Paper.
Jobling was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to study papermaking in the USA in 2008 and maintains links with International practitioners through conferences, residencies and exhibitions. The most recent Residency was in 2019 at the Morgan Conservatory in Cleveland, Ohio.
