Jacqueline’s ceramic work draws inspiration from her immediate landscape. The pieces are extremely personal and solitary, displaying a simple and sometimes romantic narrative that is acquired from living within and exploring Exmoor on foot.

The handbuilt vessel form is prosaic rather than purely functional, with titles that are quite suggestive and evocative, inviting closer scrutiny. Surfaces are created through layers of colour and illustrations, the drawings being naive and sometimes primitive.

Jacqueline graduated with a 1st Class BA Hons degree in Ceramic Design from the Central St Martins College of Art in 1989. She completed an MA at Central St Martins specialising in Ceramic Illustration.
