Jackie has spent much of her life drawing, painting, designing, cutting, glueing, making, creating, sculpting, dreaming...and colouring-in.

"I'm drawn to the 'still life' genre and explore imagery related to stillness, solitude and nature in my oil paintings and personal photography.  I find myself instinctively drawn towards native flora, leaves, organic shapes and forms, and love to celebrate unique textural qualities, light and colour in my surroundings, 

by emphasising these elements in my work"

  Jackie has illustrated numerous books for children, including one of her own

 'Me & My Family Tree'

She has designed and illustrated educational resources for teachers, therapists and psychologists

Jackie has presented art workshops for primary school aged children
