DR JAY HARLEY has developed her craft as a graphic artist over many years. This formalised, in 1987, into a company which has embraced a range of artistic pursuits – graphic art, corporate video production, journalism and theatre. Jay has been a regular contributor in print media, including being the cartoonist for Reptiles Australia, and Ozbike, Australia's Harley-Davidson magazine, for many years.
She also worked as a radio broadcaster, journalist/editor; a promotions consultant for television, and was head of a government Multi-Media Unit in Sydney. She’s done a million other things too, but we’re mainly talking about the arty stuff here.
Jay is a published author and a conference speaker who is equally comfortable in relaxed environments entertaining audiences with her live drawing presentations.
She is a film maker and a stand-up comedian too. Her "Mrs Bonfire" alter ego made the semi-finals in Australia's Got Talent. She's also an actor and is seen occasionally on television commercials, television series, films, and in corporate and educational videos.
In 2020 Dr Jay, known as "Caricature Queen" began livestreaming her artwork on Twitch.TV.
