010: Freya Jobbins doesn’t give up

Freya Jobbins is a Sydney based contemporary artist working with assemblage, collage, installation and printmaking. Better known for her plastic assemblages created from deconstructed dolls and plastic children’s toys, Freya also creates larger site specific installations and sculptures.

Art has always been a part of Freya but it wasn’t until recently that she went to art school in her early 50’s.  Prior to this she was a police woman and became the first female weapons instructor, but a serious car accident ended that career.  It was a very long road to recovery, and please note that we do touch on domestic violence, PTSD, and a suicide attempt in this conversation.  This was 20 years ago and we want to assure you that Freya is in good health.
