Jacqueline’s work explores nature, the landscape and animal forms most particularly, horses and dogs. She finds the horse and it’s relationship to humans and it’s movement through our created landscape constantly intriguing. Through her exploration of the equine form she hopes to develop a greater understanding of these elegant, powerful and sensitive creatures. She uses a variety of printmaking techniques including intaglio, woodcut, cyanotype and monoprint. Jacqueline was a long-standing member of Blackstack Studio in Kilkenny until it’s closure in June 2020.

A keen interest in the natural environment has led to the adoption of non-toxic printmaking techniques, which combines the use of new technologies with traditional techniques to produce a safer and less toxic method of producing intaglio prints. More recently Jacqueline has been working in ceramics with the animal form as her focus.
