Jackie is fascinated by faces. She has painted them for as long as she can remember, as well as figures in general. She enjoys experimenting with techniques used by the old masters, such as under paintings with layers of glazes as well as working on more contemporary, immediate pieces.
Jackie does paint other subjects, including flowers, still life and animals but is always drawn back to people; this is how she is most fulfilled.
Jackie generally paints on canvas mainly in acrylics, sometimes in oils. Occasionally she experiments with watercolours. She is available to commission – either specific portraits from photographs, more general paintings or fine art reproductions.
Jackie provides art lessons in North Nottinghamshire in the form of individual tuition and block classes. The aim of these lessons is to encourage and guide people to develop their own style, ability and, most importantly, enjoyment.
