Born 1968, Melbourne, Australia; lives and works in Melbourne, Australia, Jacqui Stockdale was raised in Benalla in northeast Victoria. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1990 and later moved to Hobart to undertake a Graduate Diploma (Video Art) at the University of Tasmania. She moved to Sydney in the late 1990s and then to Darwin in 2000 to take up an appointment as the Arts Officer at Berrima Prison.

Her experiences teaching art to inmates there fundamentally shifted the way she approached her art practice and thought about the construction of identity. Since returning to Melbourne in 2002 Stockdale has exhibited extensively within Australia and internationally, including most recently in Magic Object, Art Gallery of South Australia, 2016; Arthur Guy Memorial Award, Bendigo Gallery, 2015; Joseph Ulrick & Win Schubert Award, Gold Coast City Gallery, 2015; Alles Maskerade, Museum Villa Rot, Germany, 2014; and Living Rooms, curated by Robert Wilson, Louvre Museum, Paris, France, 2014. Stockdale's work is held in significant collections within Australia and internationally.

Jacqui is a very gentle teacher, this is my first time to learn oil painting. I thought I will freak out but actually I was not. Jacqui always went around and looked after every student, gave her advices. Also, the model is so professional and beautiful, she created a lot of beautiful poses for us to practice painting. I’m so happy go home with a lot of painting by myself, and one of my favorite painting became a birthday gift to my friend. Everything is wonderful!
