Hi! I’m Jackie, a self-taught artist living in Worcestershire. I specialise in pet portraits and wildlife art – big cats are an obsession for me!
I work primarily with soft pastels and pastel pencils on velour and pastelmat, but I also use oils and acrylics. Recently I’ve discovered the art of coloured pencils and have started to produce a few portraits using this medium. My aim is to produce realistic, lifelike drawings and paintings with attention to detail a priority – to capture the personality of each individual animal. I work from photographs, my own where possible.
I regularly attend professional workshops, always trying to learn new tips and techniques to bring into my work. In 2014 I completed a Pet Portraits Diploma with the London Art College receiving a ‘Pass with Distinction’ and I also exhibit my work locally on a regular basis
I hope that you enjoy viewing my artwork, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss further to have your very own pet portrait.
