Jacky welcomes you to her new online shop!
Jacky took up painting in 2012. Her style is very loose and impressionistic with a strong bold use of colour. Her pictures have been exhibited in Hythe and have sold over the last two years. Limited print runs have been available of some of the pictures and these are also selling well. Cards are made from the pictures and are available in large medium and some in small as well.
The proceeds of sales go to a charity called Jessie’s fund; this provides music therapy for children in Hospices and also works with children in special schools throughout Britain and trains teachers to use music creatively with children. See link to Jessie’s Fund www.jessiesfund.org.uk
There is also a unique range of children’s cards. The dinosaur cards came about as a little boy requested ‘real’ dinosaur cards, not cartoon dinosaur cards. The cards when shut look like something else, and then open up to reveal a real dinosaur to surprise the child. There are 4 in this range. Then there are 2 fairy cards that similarly open out to reveal a fairy world. All these cards are hand finished and come in large or small A new Mermaid card has been added to this range too.
Jacky has used her teaching skills to develop a pack for 3 of the cards so that children can make their own cards.
