About Jacky

I am an arts practitioner with over 30 years as a practicing freelance artist, craftsperson and educator. During my long career, I have been involved in a number of exhibitions, events, client based briefs, teaching and learning activities. I continue to develop my own artwork and to teach others how to create innovative and engaging artwork through painting and mixed media. Having originally trained as a jeweller and silversmith in my early career, I progressed into education and now work as freelance mixed media artist and educator. Painting and mixed media have become a great passion of mine. I love to explore natural forms, abstraction, surface texture and colour within my artwork and to experiment with different techniques to achieve the outcomes I want and love to create. My artworks are an expression of my imagination and creativity. I am someone who loves to explore new ways of working and in sharing my creativity and work with others. If you buy a piece of my artwork you will be buying into my passion, creative process and something that I have invested my heart and soul into. Put simply my art is me. I also love to develop other aspects of my work in particular private commissions, public artwork; interior and exterior murals, sculptures, outdoor planters and flags. For companies, schools, charitable organisations and local councils. If you like my work, I can be contacted below on:
