Jemima Parker is a Canberra based visual artist working across disciplines. Interested in her environment, and the often unobserved beauty that is present in the every day, she documents this through repetitive, almost meditative processes of printing, drawing and stitching. Recent works explore moments in time and experience of place, through photography and screen printing.
Jemima graduated with First Class Honours in Visual Arts from the Australian National University School of Art in 2012 and was the recipient of several ANU Emerging Artist Support Scheme awards, including a Canberra Contemporary Art Space Studio Residency. Since graduating, Jemima has exhibited widely throughout Australia and abroad, and her work is held in a number of private collections. Jemima has recently been shortlisted for several prestigious awards, including: the Fremantle Print Award, 2017, National Works on Paper, 2018 and the Australian Print Triennial Print Award, 2018.
Currently employed at the Australian National University, Jemima has worked previously as the Screen Studio Manager at Megalo Print Studio + Gallery, Canberra. Recently Jemima travelled to the USA to teach a Summer School in Surface Design and Screen Printing at Penland School of Crafts, North Carolina.
