Jackie is a contemporary textile artist who produces and designs her innovative work from her Plymouth-based studio. She interprets places and themes using a combination of fabrics, recycled materials and a variety of textiles ranging from wire, paper or garden twine to vintage sea charts. Jackie uses layers of fabric and creative stitching methods to build interesting quirky scenes and her love of colour, detail and texture features strongly throughout her work. The result is fun-filled colourful pictures that are full of interest and fine detail that makes her work unique.
Jackie is inspired by nature, buildings, travels, childhood memories, not least of all her grandmothers button tin. Having recently turned professional, Jackie’s work is already in high demand with gallery outlets and orders growing rapidly including international commissions.
