Jelina is best known as an award winning visual artist whose collaborative works have been commissioned by Le Havre Museum in France, the National Gallery of Australia, the South Australian Museum, The Migration Museum and The Maritime Museum in South Australia.
Her preferred work, in the field of wearable textile art, has resulted in a novel way of producing bright and light felt fashion pieces based on nature, especially coral and delicate, flowing, marine creatures such as the Nudibranch. Pieces of her work are in the hands of collectors worldwide and are sought after online.
To raise money for Jelina to go to the 2022 meeting of the Association for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T) in Pittsburgh, USA in October to receive her award and present at the conference, we are holding an auction of new wearable art pieces that Jelina has been working on for the last few months.
The auction is going to be held on Saturday September 17 at 6pm. The venue will be Cafe Nova in Gawler. We have booked a Matt Overd, the Modern Mystic to provide some half-time amazement and entertainment.
