Painter, Printmaker, Miniaturist and Botanical Artist

Jacqueline is a painter, printmaker, miniaturist and botanical artist now living in Llandinam, she studied Art at Manchester, gaining an Honours Degree and embarked on a career as a freelance textile designer for the household and fashion textile market, successfully selling designs to companies such as Courtaulds, Tootals, Jeffrey Rogers and Royle.  For a short period, she was a part-time tutor at Stockport College of Technology, where she taught “A” level Art and Datec Diploma in Surface Pattern.


Thrilled to be involved in a most challenging and prestigious William Blake project in the 1980s, as a major colourist, Jacqueline made watercolour copies of some of Blake’s hand coloured relief etchings from “Songs of Innocence” and “Songs of Experience” at the British Museum.  Jacqueline is proud to have been a member of the Society of Botanical Artists for many years.


As an enthusiastic volunteer gardener for the National Trust for over ten years, in the Victorian walled kitchen garden at Tatton Park, the cultivation of flowers, fruit and vegetables growing in a walled garden has undoubtedly been a tremendous source of inspiration for Jacqueline’s work. 


Many of her works have been reproduced as greeting cards, prints, calendars and cross stitch designs; she also published her own limited editions of small hand coloured etchings, which have been sold all over the world, particularly in Japan and she has work in many private collections.  A series of her watercolour paintings of shop windows inspired the creation of miniature shop windows, faithfully and meticulously reproduced in three-dimensions and in 1/12th scale.
