Cathy Julien-Jaeschke at Schaedel House (Barossa Ark)

About Cathy Julien-Jaeschke


Cathy Julien-Jaeschke's passion for art ignited at an early age, nurtured by her Steiner school education in Sydney. As a young woman, she relocated to Kangaroo Island, where the experience of raising three fantastic boys sparked a profound love for children, art, food, hospitality, and adventure.

Throughout the vibrant and fulfilling 20-year chapter of her life on Kangaroo Island, Cathy's creative side found expression in crafting food experiences and ensuring guests had an extraordinary farm-based encounter.

2012 Cathy's journey led her to the Barossa Valley, where she completed a Master of Fine Art & Design at Adelaide College of the Arts in 2015. During this time, she fell in love with Anthony Jaeschke, her husband and a wonderful man who wholeheartedly supported her artistic pursuits. This marked a significant springboard into Cathy's beloved artistic career as an arts facilitator and a skilled acrylic, watercolour, and oil painter.

Amidst the Barossa and light communities, Cathy had the pleasure of collaborating with many local aspiring artists in her Creative Art Workshops. Her particular passion is the painting ministry, where she brings people together to experience the joy of learning and creating art, fostering community connection through delightful food.

Cathy's work is deeply inspired by the Word of God, drawing from figurative elements and prophetic biblical chapters and verses. Her unique interpretation of the Word of God takes a visual form as she builds stories and layers of paint with text and pictures in watercolour, mixed media, and oil mediums.

With a heartfelt invitation, Cathy hopes viewers enjoy the experience of exploring her art.

    Schaedel House (Barossa Ark)

    In a world that at times seems to be increasingly at odds with itself, Barossa Ark aims to present a bigger picture view on our human condition highlighting hope, thankfulness, mystery, celebration.

    As part of this Arts Festival, we are delighted to have access to the State Heritage listed Schaedel House / Cottage in Nuriootpa. The State Registry reads: “this is the home and workshop of one of the Barossa’s most successful families of master craftsmen, founded by Wilhelm Schaedel and his father Julius, who produced quality furniture in German style for over 70 years. It is a rare example of a German Cabinet makers premise and workshop”.

    Behind Schaedel House, an astonishing wall-mural has been created in the Courtyard. Local artist Graham Smith, with the support of community groups and business, has created “Faith of our Forefathers”. This expansive picture captures a very typical Barossa rural landscape scene. It is Graham’s first attempt at a wall mural - something not to be missed!

    This mural is helping to create a place for people to relax in, be refreshed, inspired, sometimes challenged, and encouraged. Barossa Ark keenly supports and encourages local artists to share their insights on hope, faith and life that have grown from their personal experience of grace.
