Artist's statement: Jackie

A few years ago I began to work on a series of paintings using gold leaf. At first the works were quite small, but they soon grew with confidence. Most are iconic images of animals which celebrate the creatures and with each painting I try to catch something of their soul.

A couple of years ago I was reading The Liveships series by Robin Hobb, recommended to me by a friend. An email from an editor at Harper Collins asked if I would be interested on working on repackaging some fantasy novels. “Only if they are by Robin Hobb,” I replied. Amazingly they were and so I set out to read the Farseer Trilogy, The Liveships and The Golden Fool series as well as The Soldier Son books. Fantastic books with stories that wrap you up and remind you of why you love to read, I then had to find iconic images that would be strong enough to work as covers and used different coloured gold leaf as background. The images have red gold, green gold, moon gold, antique gold as well as white and yellow.

This was an amazing project to work on and I am currently lucky enough to be reading the manuscript of the new book by Robin which is every bit as wonderful as the others, trying to find the cover image that will make it sing.

Other works on show include two large bear paintings which come from a series that has been going for over twenty years, and some of the artwork from the Terry Pratchett Disc World Calendar.

For the first time I am showing prints from The Seal Children, published by Frances Lincoln and winner of The Tir Na Nog Prize for best English language book with a Welsh background. These are larger than the original paintings and limited edition.

Also for the first time in many years I have a few drawings exhibited.
