Jamie Lee Garner

Jamie Lee Garner is an interdisciplinary Artist that lives and works in the Northern Tablelands, on Ngarabal country in NSW. Holding a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of Sydney Jamie Lee conceptually considers the relationship between inner world and external reality. Jamie Lee has a curiosity of the energetic signature of memory and how it impacts our lives. She creates playful and kaleidoscopic works that explore form and sustainable materiality through ceramics and colourful textile offcuts.

In 2023 Jamie-Lee’s vibrant arrangements of reclaimed textiles adorning uniquely crafted ceramics took the art world by storm. The ‘Fluffies’ as they are affectionately dubbed by their creator amassed more than 1.5 million views in just one reel across the globe after being scouted by Danielle Krysa of @thejealouscurator 

HERstory as part of the Red Earth Arts Festival, will be the very first chance Western Australia has had to view the works of Ravenswood Women’s Art Finalist Jamie-Lee Garner.
