Jocelyn works in a wide range of mediums all commencing with a very active sketchbook. Holder of many prizes and awards she still practices and teaches “drawing something every day”.
Was the inaugural Head of the Art School at Meadowbank TAFE. Hundreds of art students she taught, many of whom are now eminent teaches, have been influenced by her dedication to drawing.
