Original Australian artist, based in Perth. Working with oils, acrylics and mixed media. My work is intuitive and therefore every painting is unique and can never be repeated again. For this reason I don't do commissions. I was born in Geraldton, moving to Cottesloe as a very young child and spent my childhood literally growing up on the beach. It was an absolute treasure trove of discovery with the abundant ocean, the rock pools, the ever-changing seasons and the beautiful colours. My dream was to become a commercial artist but upon leaving school I was sent off to Business College so following a year of work & saving money I then set off on a ten-year sojourn of travel around Australia, New Zealand, the Mediterranean, Israel, Ireland, UK and Europe. I landed back in WA to the Gascoyne region where I spent six months prospecting for gold and then lay roots in Dampier where I lived for the next seven years. Continuing on from my childhood dream, over the years I undertook multiple different art & craft courses, fully embracing each and ultimately settled on painting. I absolutely love the solace I gain from getting in touch with my creative side. Luckily I have had inspirational teachers who are very good at encouraging their students to develop their own individual style. The creative process for me is very spiritual and because of this, rewarding and fulfilling. All of my pieces are immensely personal and reflect back to very significant times throughout my life. When I’m too busy to start a new project I find my mind wandering through colours, shapes and subjects and always have a painting waiting to emerge. As my style develops and evolves, the journey of discovering new techniques spurs me on to explore, experiment and attempt new approaches to enhance my work. Painting to me is a meditation and has brought me great peace and fulfilment.

We were fortunate to find Jackie. We wanted 2 paintings for our home and couldn't find what we liked. I contacted Jackie on the Saturday afternoon and she very kindly offered to come to our home and look at the space we had. We now have two absolutely amazing paintings on our wall! Jackie was lovely throughout the whole process and so easy to deal with Her work is really stunning! We still need another painting for our home and hope to get another from Jackie in the new year.
