About Jackie

I am an artist and writer. I live in a small house by the sea in Wales where I write, paint, walk and watch and dream of bears and whales. I love to read, have a wish for wings and prefer the company of animals to that of humans, though at times I can be quite friendly. I am learning how to work with wood engraving tools and hoping to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

  1. This is great Jackie! I often write little phrases on my typewriter and always have it ready on the desk for inspiration. It’s lovely that you have one with such a personal history. Typewriters are the new black.

  2. Anita says:

    Wonderful that this machine has a new home with you where it will be loved and respected. Whatever you write with it will have special meaning.

  3. …..this touches a chord that vibrates my own past. I discarded (delivered to a thrift) my own Dad’s 1950’s typewriter over a decade ago, having carried it for many previous decades, and written countless letters, stories and missives upon it. In the rush to “clear” the clutter, since I was then using an electric, and now the computer exclusively, I let it go. I wish I hadn’t.
