Jacqui has a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and works in paint and printmaking. Her colourful screen prints and intricately carved blind embossings are inspired by observing and exploring places that she visits and the objects within them.
She is a member of Birmingham Printmakers, Wrexham Print Centre and re:collect, a group of artists exploring, making and exhibiting contemporary art in the heritage context.
Awards include funded projects by Arts Council England and Shropshire Council: new work for Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery; a touring Cabinet of Curiosity and two exhibitions marking the anniversaries of the start and the end of WW1.
In the autumn of 2016 Jacqui was one of four artists selected to collaborate with artwork at BPN Architects in Birmingham, she exhibited 'Reveal, Conceal', a collection of screen prints inspired by buildings and architecture around the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter.
Jacqui teaches print workshops at Birmingham Printmakers and Westhope College, Shropshire. She has also taught print as part of exhibitions and funded projects in museum, school and heritage venues.
My practice revolves around memories of places visited and the objects within them. Images and feelings of these spaces are retraced to create an essence in print and painting. Colour is important in my work, subtle, vibrant and sometimes a contrast of the two. I also create works devoid of colour (white) such as my blind embossings. Reoccurring themes are Architecture, archaeology, museum objects, botanical inspiration and landscape.
