Australian nature, the spectacular landscapes of her native New Zealand, and British and European history and scenery capture her imagination.

Renowned for attention to detail, Jordan works in water-based paint, often putting acrylic on watercolour and working with a palette knife to achieve effect.

‘Frequent visits to New Zealand allow me to bring into my work some of the differing hues, lighting and spectacular landscape of that country,’ she said.

Since 1975, award-winning Jordan has been a regular contributor to Army Art, a volunteer-run charity art show for established and emerging WA artists.

She will show four paintings ” Buskers, a fishing village, Tall Poppies and the whimsical Slops’ Laundry Service, at this year’s show on August 3 and 4, at Leeuwin Barracks, East Fremantle, 10am-5pm, with $2 entry.

Sculpture, glass, ceramics and jewellery will also be on show and sale to benefit Retina Australia WA and Fairholme Disability Support Group.

Other local artists contributing include Nira Roberts, Carmel McFaull, Betty McLean, Rayma Reany, Susan Payne, Siobhan Wright, Lyn Franke and Mary Pfister.

Opening night tickets for Friday, August 2, are $30, pre-purchased from armyarttickets@hotmail.com
