Jacqueline is a Sydney based artist, born in Broken Hill and raised in (R)Adelaide. From a young age she was always creating pieces of art here there. After finishing high school she moved to Paraguay with her family where she studied graphic design, did a few years of private oil painting classes, photography & engraving workshops and studied visual arts at the Superior Institute of Art of the National University of Asuncion where she discovered and developed her abstract expressionist style of painting.
The foundation of her practice is based on the spontaneity of abstract expressionism. It enables her to express and translate a non-tangible experience into a visual form enabling viewers into her visual world.
Her paintings are inspired by her surroundings, music and experiences and are created with acrylic paints and palette knives. This fast paced technique of using a palette knife creates textural qualities, expressive gestures, enhances light and movement. She has exhibited as a solo artist and taken part in group exhibitions in Asuncion, Sydney and Melbourne.

Teacher was good, not too artsy which I liked but could have provided more understanding on our goals/intentions of the warm up exercises.
Venue in DARLINGHURST was lovely and added to the tranquil element of the class.
We learnt palette knife painting techniques and got to use artist extensive supply of knives but we didn’t see her demonstrate much. And only took canvases home, I had thought I might get some knives too to enable me to keep practising.
Overall, I really enjoyed my time out being creative.

Thank you Jacqueline and other class members for an enjoyable workshop. The view was fantastic out the windows. Jacqueline was very helpful and attentive. I would like to attend another workshop after I have practised a bit, to come and learn more.
