Jinky by Barb Uil


Thank you for your interest in my work.  I create both textile art and photography.  You can view some of my current textile pieces that are available for purchase in the shop link above, as well as photographic tools and workshops.

Sometimes I take private commissions to create a bespoke artwork or photography just for you or your someone special.  If you would like to get in touch with your special commission request, please contact me at barb@jinkyart.com.au


Inspired by childhood wanderings, boundless imagination, far away places, antique treasures and all things family.  Barb is known for her storytelling via photography and art textiles that are both magical and imaginative, whilst depicting all things whimsy.

Her admiration and love for children has inspired not only the JinkyArt brand but has also allowed her to travel worldwide booking countless portrait commissions,  teach over a hundred JinkyArt photography workshops, feature in magazines globally and become a recognized name in the world of Children’s Photography.

However, Barb Uil loves nothing more than the simple pleasure of photographing the children that she meets and creating pieces that depict their boundless imaginations and love that they feel for their families.

“Her photos make for a walk down a vivid memory lane. Full and alive with color, the photographs evoke echoes of innocent laughter, the feel of hushed breeze, and the soothing, calming warmth of the sun. Not to mention, a tinge of nostalgia for the good old days of childhood.” ~ Digital Photographer Magazine Asia Pacific.”

“It’s a truly rare talent, Barb Uil captures pure essence of baby…”- Practical Parenting Magazine Australia
