Jackie inherited a talent for drawing from her grandparents who were both commercial illustrators. When she left school at 16, she started her working life as an animal nurse and found the inpatients made good subjects to study!

She took an A-level in Art at Woolwich College and then realised that she had an irresistible itch to paint. She became a self-employed artist in 1984.

At first many of her commissions were, unsurprisingly, animal portraits but gradually she took on more varied subjects. In 2001, she was asked to take over the teaching of an art class and it was then that she realised how much she had learnt during her experimentation. It was also in one of her classes that she met a friend who was an associate member of SOFA and that rekindled her love for painting cats. She joined SOFA in 2009 and became a full member in 2016.
