Jacqueline is a Sydney based artist, born in Broken Hill and raised in (R)Adelaide. From a young age she was always creatng pieces of art here there. After finishing high school she moved to Paraguay with her family where she studied a year of graphic design, took a few years of private oil painting classes, did photography & engraving workshops and studied visual arts at the Superior Institute of Art of the National University of Asuncion where she discovered and developed her abstract expressionist style of painting.

The foundation of her practice is based on the spontaneity of abstract expressionism. It enables her to express and translate a non-tangible experience into a visual form enabling viewers into her visual world.

Her paintings are inspired by her surroundings, music and experiences and are created with acrylic paints and palette knives. This fast paced technique of using a palette knife creates textural qualities, expressive gestures, enhances light and movement. She has exhibiting as a solo artist and taken part in group exhibitions in Asuncion, Sydney and Melbourne.

Later this year she will be an artist in resident at Flinders Island, Tasmania where she will also be running a palette knife workshop in September.

The class was great fun, with lots of chance to experiment and explore the new techniques. It was just the right length and provided all the materials we needed. I ended up with a painting I adore and have already hung on the wall! An excellent afternoon and great value.

This was a great venue but overall a dissapoiing afternoon , as far as learning went. Very little instruction, or showing technique, it was more just have a go, and working with plastic cheap knives really did not help. I enjoyed been creative and time out but I could have done it myself at home
