Jacqueline describes her work as an attempt to capture memories and the reality of the natural world. Although she uses a camera for her artistic studies, her finished paintings are built up as composites.
Her love of the natural world inspires Jacqueline’s art. Born in Blenheim, the artist moved to Carterton in 2013, and the wildlife of the region has provided the ideal subjects for her skills.
Jacqueline has long been an admirer of the work of Raymond Harris-Ching and Carl Benders, she has found wildlife an endlessly fascinating subject for study. Growing up on a farm has been a major influence and Jacqueline is at her happiest working free from the interruptions of urban life, either photographing and sketching nature or working at her easel.
