Born with a natural gift and passion for light and colour, Jacki’s creative spirit has always delighted in her exposure to and the magnificence of all that Queensland Australia has to offer.
Over her lifetime of experimenting with numerous artistic methods, she has been able to refine and develop her process, a process that illuminates our personal reconnect with nature’s beauty.
Over the last ten years, Jacki has immersed herself in and revived the ancient 5th century B.C. painting medium of Encaustic art. Encaustic means “to burn in or fuse”. By working with this versatile medium and various contemporary methods Jacki has developed her own unique application and style.
Each unique piece Jacki so lovingly creates, touches and impresses the individual with a deeply personal inner sentiment, evoking feelings, and memory. It’s as if the light and colour speak to an innate part of us which invokes our own interpretation. This form of art is known as ‘Biomorphic’, whereby imagery and design elements of naturally occurring patterns or shapes reminiscent of nature and living organisms are abstractly observed in a painting. As a visual artist Jacki resources from her own memoirs of people and places.
