venue 47: New Mills Volunteer Centre
After moving to Hayfield Jacqueline instantly fell in love with the arts and craft side of the village, which inspired her to pick up a paintbrush and start experimenting. After a good push from friends Jacqueline set up a Facebook page and started to sell personalised illustrations. Nothing could have prepared her for the positive response and she was swamped with orders from all over the world, and it is still the same now. As her confidence grew, so did her work. Jacqueline found herself taking on commissions for large watercolour, ink and acrylic paintings. These are not often advertised as orders come from word of mouth.
Jacqueline feels that she is at the very early stage of finding out who she is both personally and as an artist and looks forward to what the future may hold.
