Jennifer Payne


Jenn is passionate about painting vivid,bright,vibrant colours of the Tropical Paradise in the "Magical Realism" style.

Born in Melbourne she fell in love with the tropics & coconut palms as a teenager and moved to take a job on Dunk Island in the early 80's. Now a resident of Mission Beach for over 35 years, Jenn spent many years working as a skipper on tourist vessels, exploring the reef & islands in this region. It was during these years that the scenery & colours of the Great Barrier reef & Tropical Islands inspired her to start painting.
