About

"Beauty, love & honour is found all around us - sometimes we can miss the emotions that are at play - the slightest look from an animal, child or friend that can convey a story so vast and tactile that a second later we would have failed to see".

"Ever since I can remember I have used my hands to create; at times it all most feels like an obsession as my thought's are always with what can I create next...."

Jacqui has been painting, making sculptures & taking photographs for over 25 years - exhibiting in more than 20 solo shows since 1993 both in Australia & Internationally. Her subjects include nature, animals, people & colour.

Jacqui's artwork has been published in Women's Weekly, Courier Mail, Art Almanac, Australian Art Collector, The Australian, Rake (Series 3) Time Out, Grazia, Sunday Telegraph, Sun Herald, Dog's Life Magazine, Gold Coast Bulletin, Kluster along with many others.

Her paintings have become synonymous with emotive themes such as beauty, love and honour - driven by a background growing up in England as well as emigrating to Australia has given growth to work that both acknowledges the robust nature of her subjects while injecting a poetic liveliness.

Influences

There are so many experiences I have and things I see that have an influence on my creative process - from emotions shared with others to nature and the interactions with animals.
