Jude Roberts

Jude Taggart Roberts is a visual artist and facilitator of arts related projects. Her work focus’s on landscapes that we cannot visibly experience, in particular the Great Artesian Basin. The work is created using a variety of media often on paper, to reveal the hidden interrelationships and histories of the watersheds, artesian basins and springs. Through researching drawing and print media methods as well as connecting with river communities, the artist’s practice addresses issues about water, land and the finite sources of the artesian basins.
