After experimenting in different forms of art, Jackie found the medium of mosaics in 2010. Prior to that she had spent several years developing her watercolour skills. She concentrated on flower painting and discovered she had an eye for almost botanical detail.
From watercolours, Jackie moved on to stained glass panel making and from there to mosaics. Most recently she has experimented with stained glass applique, where the precise cutting and shaping of the glass sheets follows the opus sectile style.
Jackie's works include mosaic mirrors, wall panels, table tops and wall plaques.
"Mosaic is durable, water- and weather-proof and hardwearing," she says. "It can be muted or vibrant, gentle or exciting, but there is always flow and colour and texture to enrich the soul."
