Jennifer Keeler-Milne studied at the Melbourne College of Advanced Education from 1979-82 and completed post-graduate studies in painting at the Victorian College of the Arts (University of Melbourne) in 1991. She has exhibited since 1984 and was resident at the AGNSW's atelier at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, 1999.
Somewhat reminiscent of John Constable's remarkable cloud studies (except in size), Jennifer Keeler Milne's drawings of clouds are sophisticated and carefully observed. Her clouds have substance and presence, or great lightness and transparency suggestive of changing weather conditions, space and atmosphere.
This work was exhibited in the Dobell Drawing Prize 2000 held at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
