Artist - Jackie Forbes Henderson

Available in the Gallery

Jackie graduated in Contemporary Art Practice only two years ago after raising her lovely family. Art has always been a large part of her life as she worked within various sectors bringing out her creative skills as a children’s book illustrator, art therapist and self employed arts and crafts worker.

Before moving to Glasgow to complete her degree, Jackie found herself living in a farmhouse in rural Angus on the east of Scotland. Her environment is a constant source of inspiration and features heavily in her work, translating it into quirky observations.  Jackie now loives in East Lothian.

Often featuring birds to represent herself, Jackie’s work is very autobiographical. Her still life studies are an appreciation of the moment, encouraging us to value the world we have around us and right in front of our eyes.

Working in acrylics, layers of colour are built up through layers of paint and glaze, so that what lies beneath is as important as what is visible on the surface. Textiles and collage are added to give yet another layer of interest and texture.

Jackie’s work is sold in galleries throughout Scotland, selling to private collectors worldwide.
