Jackie, BA (Hons) in Contemporary Art Practice, grew up on the East of Scotland and likes to incorporate her experiences of rural living combined with her love of the countryside and the sea..
Jackie works predominantly in acrylics, building up layers with paint and glaze, allowing her to rub back revealing previous layers of colour. Texture is developed through the use of imprinting lace and delicate textiles into a gesso and modelling paste base.
Through the clever use of these layers Jackie produces highly appealing work and with closer inspection a complexity and deeper meaning is unveiled.
The Atelier Gallery was created in 2018 to encourage the creation and presentation of original art in a welcoming environment. Easing the journey from studio, through framing and presentation to gallery and then buyer, the artist is represented with a body of work so that viewers can be closer to the artist, their mindset, motivations and inspiration. We will be showcasing a carefully selected group of established and emerging artists, many of whom are new to the Edinburgh art scene.
