Jennifer Payne

tropical painter


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.
