Born in the Dales village of Buckden, Jacquie grew up in the Yorkshire Dales, studying at the Harrogate School of Art and at Jacob Kramer College in Leeds. Jacquie now lives and paints in Grassington, capturing the landscapes in which she lives in her unique , semi-abstract style.
Jacquie’s paintings are inspired by the work of the St. Ives artists and the Scottish Colourists. Starting with a a theme or subject in mind they develop as she paints, until, in Jacquie’s words, “The subject matter is very much of secondary importance: The main thing is the work, what it looks like, was it worth doing? Hopefully, yes!”
