My inspirations come from Nature, therefore Flora and Fauna are foremost in my work. Paintings for the garden and outdoor rooms seem the natural way to go.
Jinty Stockings was born in Scotland, 1942. Educated in Egypt and Scotland where art at school emphasized sound drawing techniques. Born into an artistic family her appreciation for beauty and excellence was instilled from an early age. Drawing and painting were her favourite subjects. While training as a nurse and midwife in Scotland, and working in Saudi Arabia and on passenger ships as a nurse she continued to paint and then developed her own style of creative sewing. From 1970 she designed hand made exclusive evening skirts for Harrods, London. In 1974, married with a son, she moved with her husband to Australia, settling on the Blackall Range, Qld. Continuing to work with textiles; she opened The Silk Shop in Montville in 1985, making individual couturier outfits. Meeting like minded artists she attended workshops on a regular basis in the 1990′s. Working from a converted Cow Bails Studio, Jinty considers herself a Decorative Artist, from Textiles to Acrylic and Watercolour paints. She has for many years exhibited here and overseas. Invited to join a group of painters, WOWW Jinty experienced painting en plain air for the first time, travelling to the outback and to other parts of Queensland. This helped to develop and enforce her desire to concentrate on painting, Jinty had two sell out exhibitions following these expeditions. This has led to multimedia techniques and at present she is specialising in weatherproof outdoor Wall Art for courtyards, balconies and gardens.
