About The Artist

“For as long as I could hold a pencil I was drawing everything I saw around me. Summers spent staying in my granny’s house as a child at the foot of the Mountains of Mourne allowed my siblings and I to embark on many adventures.

After climbing these iconic mountains our reward on reaching the top was the views of the magnificent Irish Sea. This has undoubtedly influenced my work. Throughout school my Art teacher was so encouraging and complimentary of my talent and said she could imagine me painting portraits on the banks of the Seine in Paris in the future.

It was her belief in me that led me to complete my B.Ed (Hons) in Art & Design in 2000. Alongside my busy career as an Art teacher I have remained determined to continue my own love of painting holding 5 solo exhibitions of my work to date.”

Art In The Workplace

Art in the workplace has been shown to benefit employee well-being and performance. This is significant, as the office can easily become a place of stress and tension, and people become cognitively exhausted after prolonged periods of highly-focused work. Viewing artwork, particularly realistic nature scenes, helps workers restore mental energy and reduce stress

Impress Clients

Most companies will know that making a good first impression with clients and potential clients is extremely important. The first thing that your visitors see when walking through the doors of your office can automatically give them an impression of what sort of company you are. Being greeted by interesting and impressive art will not only inspire a little intrigue, but will impress potential clients.

What To Expect

Jacqueline mainly work’s with Oils and Acrylics and subjects include Seascapes, Landscapes, Still Life, Figures, Portraits, Buildings and Wild Flowers. Jacqueline’s work has been described as vibrant, energetic and colourful. All paintings are available for sale.
