Hands on the Arts


Jessica Horne-Kennedy

As Education and Care Consultant for Gowrie NSW, Jessica brings a strong background of knowledge drawn from her experiences as an early childhood teacher, director and researcher.  Prior to working in early childhood, Jessica trained and practiced as a visual artist and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Otago Art School in New Zealand.  As an artist, Jessica’s practice focused on mixed-media drawing as a tool to explore the concepts of memory, time and space.  The stories that particular spaces and places evoke is a theme that has also  emerged in Jessica’s work as a teacher where she has been exploring the way that educator’s personal narratives, memories and experiences  influence their philosophy and inturn their work with children and families.
