Jenni Kemarre Martiniello
Jenni Kemarre Martiniello is a prolific artist and writer whose forays into the medium of glass have been highly successful. A graduate of the Australian National University School of Art, Martiniello was introduced to glass as a medium for her artwork during a group residency at the Canberra Glassworks in 2008.
IndigiGlass08: Postcards from the Referendum was created to mark the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Aboriginal Referendum and involved four artists who had been working together as part of the Indigenous Textile Artists Group (ITAG). Canberra Glassworks and associated artists taught them new techniques for their art with highly successful results.
Martiniello was a finalist in the 2011 Ranamok Glass Prize with her Eel Traps and her works are now in some significant public and private collections.
