Meet the Artist


My art is inspired by nature and by my natural inclination to explore the spiritual in the material. I love to immerse myself in nature’s stillness, beauty, aliveness, textures, colours, shapes. Sometimes I sketch out in nature, but what really happens on my sojourns into nature is an absorption on many levels that later comes out into my work.

I create mostly intuitively. What that means is what I see, feel, witness becomes shapes, marks, colour. I endeavour to express what has touched my heart and soul equally if not more so, than what I actually visually see before me.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Aesha Kennedy acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. I pay my respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
