Loubser was born in Cape Town but grew up in Mokopane. She graduated in 1998 with a Graphic Design Diploma at the Tswane University of Technology (TUT) under the guidence of lecturers such as Carl Jeppe, Anette Pretorius and Lynette Ten Krooden.
Situated in Cape Town, Jodie explores her country regularly and developed a passionate love for the South African landscape. She mostly draws inspiration from European Victorian Interiors, architecture and the art of the old masters like Monet, Adolph Menzel, Gustave Caillebotte and Degas.
Loubser has been a full time artist since 2012. She enjoys the freedom to challenge new methods of applying paint. With her realism she prefers a natural pallet and with her admiration for the impressionistic French influences she draws the viewer into a contrasting more colourful pallet knifed interpretation. There is a privacy of emotion in her subjects which leaves the viewer with a memory of nostalgia. You cannot fail to realize that each painting has its own story and emotion woven within the technique and there is true challenge in trying to unravel your memory experienced by each portrayal.
