Jacqui describes art as being one of her first best friends – a special heartfelt relationship began. She believes magic happens when you discover your own personal colour, imagery, thoughts and feelings. It’s a “LET’S GO” moment when paint or pencil makes its first visual mark. Jacqui’s inspiration flows from nature’s stories, Earth’s beautiful creatures, and Mother Nature’s powerful message of interconnectedness.
Jacqui loves to teach art and connect with others. Her own business, Mount WildheART, runs art classes from three local primary schools with teen and adult classes in her sunny home based studio in Arataki.
