Jackie has had a lifelong interest in drawing and painting. After a career change in her 50’s she set a goal to pursue her art passion with formal studies in drawing, watercolour and botanical art.
The beauty of nature and her love of the outdoors stirs her emotions and inspires her. Jackie chooses her subjects to paint by what speaks to her … simplicity, contours, flow … as well as their imagery and architectural shapes. She enjoys bringing her meticulous rendered drawings and painting to life through graphite, pen & ink, coloured pencil and watercolour and does not hesitate to mix the various media.
Jackie is a member of the Botanical Artists of Canada, Mississauga Arts Council, Visual Arts Mississauga, Mississauga Lakeshore Art Trail and The Thursday Artists. Jackie has exhibited within the GTA and southern Ontario both as an individual artist and a member of The Thursday Artists. Her works can be found in private collections within Canada and the United States.
