Jayne Henderson has had a long association with the Mornington Peninsula . Jayne's subject matter includes main coastal scenes from Mt Eliza to Sorrento and particularly vistas of many of the Mornington beaches. You will notice in her striking paintings, not only the love of bayside subject matter, but also an attention to detail as well as the determination to portray it as easily recognisable.
This character is enhanced by a high key palette which makes her work distinctive and instantly recognisable. Her style is strong and vigorous, showing the influence of the Australian impressionists she so admires. Collectors of her work appreciate and admire the exactness of her tonal values.
