MENTORING

 

Art is an expression of what it means to be human.

Everybody is an artist and so you and your art are unique.

Jenna mentors a diverse range of people and has mentored artists, arts workers and women from all walks of life who are ready to make major changes in their art practice and/or their life.  Through deep listening and open questioning, Jenna assists and empowers the individual to find their unique path and voice and curate a mindset and a realistic, step-by-step plan of action that serves and ignites their passion and purpose.  Jenna works with a small number of people at any given time.  If you are interested in working with Jenna to take the next step in your career or life, please make contact with Jenna through the Connect page.

“I started working with Jenna about 18 months ago and as a woman of colour and culture she treated me with utmost respect, my cultural knowledge was valued hence I have never felt so culturally safe. She valued the inherent knowledge without exploitation and extraction which I truly admire.

 

In our time together she helped me with strategic project planning, grant scoping, grant writing, budgets, developing a practice ecology and succinct communication. As a person of colour and having our voices usually suppressed, silenced or denied I found Jenna took a lot of time to deeply listen, think and learn from me, she understood my world view, perspective and values so well in her words “was a mirror” that was then reflected back on my practice and my practice ecology to elevate it so I was in service.

 

In the last 12 months I have successfully transitioned from a corporate job, where I was trying to fit in, to an independent multidisciplinary artist feeling I belong in the arts world.”
