Multi award winning professional artist and tutor
is fascinated by light and atmosphere which is the driving force for her to paint. Whilst she specialises in watercolours, loving the sense of freedom and spontaneity that this medium does best, oils, pastels and pencil work are also a frequent part of Jacky’s work.
Her usual and preferred method of working involves undertaking detailed sketches and draft-paintings and photographs on site or at a sitting with a model and she completes her finished paintings in her studio.
She loves painting streets, full of life, maritime scenes as she has lived with boats since she was a child and now she is now turning her attention to more figure work.
This exhibition will include these latest figure works, and work from her recent trip to Europe and also her very popular New Zealand scenes.
Jacky’s work is held in private and public collections in New Zealand and abroad. A watercolour “Save our Trolleys” represents New Zealand in the permanent collection at the International Museum of Watercolours in Mexico.
Jacky has won numerous awards including the 2009 and 2010 Raye Hannan Memorial Trophy and Gold Medal for Most Successful Artist of the Royal Easter Show in Auckland.

She is also represented in the book Splash 11, New Directions, The Best of Watercolor - the North American publication showcasing international watercolourists.
Jacky was awarded the overall winner in the national Wai-Portrait Awards 2011 and in 2012 awarded public vote for “best in the show” Rotary Southwards Art Show.
Her work features in numerous books, magazines and calendars including Denis Robinson’s books “New Zealand in Watercolour”, “Artists Impressions of New Zealand” and ”Christchurch, an Artists Tribute”.

Jacky has also published her own series of three calendars 2000, 2001 and 2003 covering all New Zealand's classical coastal lighthouses where she visited and interviewed lighthouse keepers for an included history.
Born in 1958 in England, Jacky and her family moved to New Zealand in 1991. She loved to paint and draw from a very early age and although she had a career in soil conservation and assisting her husband in a renewable energy business she now paints full time.
Self taught, Jacky has attended workshops with some of the world’s top watercolour artists. Jacky is now an experienced international art tutor and also takes regular classes in Wellington as well as workshops and master classes around New Zealand and overseas. She is a member of Watercolour New Zealand
and Hutt Art Society.
