Melbourne based artist Jessie Breakwell has been painting for more than 20 years and is globally recognized for her quirky, abstract and whimsical style, depicting zebras, elephants, tropical birds, serene still life's and intricate landscapes.
Her work is offbeat, quirky and full of wonder. Strongly influenced by the enigmatic Brett Whiteley and French Fauvist artist Henri Matisse, Jessie’s vibrant paintings evoke a sense of enchantment and fun providing light relief and a satisfying diversion from inescapable reality.
“I don’t like to take life too seriously,” Jessie says. “I’m not into realism, there’s enough drama going on in the world at the moment so I prefer to take a lighter look at life. ”
