Jackie lives in West Dorset with her husband John Walker, who is also an artist. They are both inspired by the wonderful land and seascapes on their doorstep, in Devon and Dorset.
In 2000, after a career in International Banking, Jackie decided to devote more time to her love of painting. Self-taught, she originally worked in watercolour, enjoying its spontaneity. She had various guide books published by Search Press showing the techniques. She now works in all mediums with particular interest in the effects of light and atmosphere.
Over the years her paintings have been shown across the south of the country, including the Mall Galleries and Westminster Gallery in London.
