Jacky’s practice is influenced by her love of nature and the wildlife she lives alongside in the South Downs.
Her abstract landscapes use rhythmic curves to show the play of shadows and light across the Downs whilst the angular dashes and scratches illustrate the movement and twitters of the ever present birds.
At the same time, a growing frustration with society’s seeming lack of concern and care of our environment (and each other) is reflected in her participatory pieces. Using paint, print, and collage these encourage direct input from the viewer in the form of written comments, stories and drawings.
Jacky is currently Artist in residence for Glynde, a small village in East Sussex
