Jacqueline Hammond - artist
graphic designer for many years, before retraining as a teaching assistant, where I like to inspire children to develop their own art. I paint and draw whenever I can.
Other media includes acrylics, pen and watercolour and I have recently started exploring oils. I’m part of the Stroud Artists Cooperative and like to join my fellow artists painting ‘en plein air’ when I can.
The play of dappled light, shadows, reflections and contrasts excite me and I am especially inspired by our local landscapes.
I paint with oils, but also try to capture the beauty of found objects such as feathers, shells, twigs or everyday objects in pencil or fine-liner. I hope the magic I find in everyday life comes across!
