Jackie is inspired by the beauty of nature and her love of the outdoors. She chooses her subjects to paint by what speaks to her … their simplicity, contours, flow as well as their imagery and architectural shapes.
Jackie's drawings and paintings can be quite detailed involving many layers. Although watercolour was her medium of choice initially, she now works more in coloured pencil and has explored other media such as pen & ink and silverpoint and will mix media to obtain a desired effect. Most of her works tend to be floral or botanical but she will also draw landscapes that reflect her architectural interests.
Painting for Jackie is a creative journey which may take her outside her comfort zone at times yet always provides an enriching experience that leads inevitably to its intended destination.

Jackie has exhibited within the GTA and south-central Ontario both as an individual artist and a member of The Thursday Artists.
