Jacqueline started painting her Remembrance Collection in 2014. Her first work, ‘We Remember, We Fight On’ was painted as a tribute to her friend Royal Marine Neil Dunstan, who tragically lost his life in an IED explosion whilst serving in Afghanistan in 2008.
Since then Jacqueline’s artwork has helped raise over £250,000 for military charities.
Being one of the final generation whose grandparents served during The Second World War and whose great grandparents served during The First World War, Jacqueline has a strong desire to remind people, through her imagery, that the freedom they are blessed with today wasn’t free. Remembrance Day is Every Day.
Jacqueline’s military poppy prints have been well received by an international audience, and have very quickly proved extremely popular; she is now widely regarded as the country’s foremost Remembrance Artist.
Jacqueline paints in both expressionism and impressionism styles. Her original works are painted impasto in acrylic, using texture to create mood and depth, with red remembrance poppies juxtaposed against gritty impressionistic landscapes. Her paintings feature silhouettes which help her audience connect with the works in a more personal, emotional and sentimental way; encouraging the people she paints for to relate to the subjective nature of the paintings.
