Jacqueline  spent most of childhood and  early adulthood moving between the rural and coastal areas of   Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. She finally settled  in Southampton with her partner and then young son  where she finally felt at  home and found a  creative community to share her creative passions with.

Her early experiences of needing to adapt to new environments and people  has influenced her in many ways and fostered a desire to communicate and understand the world around her  and is central to her creative outputs.

“It is strange to think now that  it hadn’t occurred to me that I could  share  my  work , I had so much time enabling others that I had taken my own creative nature and ability for granted. It is quite a step to share your work with others,being self taught with no formal art training  I hadn’t realised how much I  had learned .  It was a light bulb moment  when I took the step myself  “

Once the fire to  share her creative outputs with others was  ignited it  burned  brightly and is now  a driving force in her life.

“My life  experiences  have shaped me and drives me to  find new inspiration from the world around me “.

The inspiration for her work stems from a fascination with pattern, shape, texture, colour,the natural world  and the  desire to capture a fleeting magical moment inviting you to explore further and often starts life as a simple line a pattern or a texture which then evolves.

“I love just seeing what happens,  immersing  myself  in the experience, responding to the moment allowing an idea to evolve and develop taking me on a journey. “

Jacqueline painterly works are created  using a range of materials including acrylic paint and pen, mixed media and pastels .

Her  digital art works are created with a range of software that allow me to focus on  abstractive  shape and colour creating  spaces in time.

Her  photography focusses  on the desire to capture the fleeting moment, evoke a memory and invite  you to step into another space or time.
