Jacqui is a mixed media artist with a passion for texture and rich vibrant colours. From her beginnings as a painter she has diversified in to textiles and makes her own felt which she then embellishes with threads, silks and stitch.

Jacqui is taking part in Warwickshire Open Studios this year and opening her home to art lovers everywhere.  For details see website www.warwickshireopenstudios.org

“I love nothing more than visiting flea markets, old fashioned haberdashery shops and the odd car boot sale to pick up interesting items.  My husband might call it “more clutter” but to me it is treasure that has found a good home and can be used all over again.”  Jacqui is currently serving on the committee as Exhibitions Secretary for the Coventry & Warwickshire Society of Artists
