Honiton’s tourist information centre has been splashed with colour with the arrival of a new display of artwork aiming to boost funds to keep the service running.

Sidmouth artist Jacqueline Steel is supporting Honiton Information Centre through her artwork - a proportion of the money made from the sale of her paintings will go to the TIC.

“It is all about raising funds for the TIC to keep it open,” says Jacqueline.

Jacqueline currently runs art courses at Deer Park Country Hotel, private tuition sessions and takes commissions of paintings, in addition to working full-time at an opticians and performing in rock band Stonefox.

She started painting about four years ago and her passion for art has grown and grown. Now, she is sharing it with the people of Honiton and those visiting the town.

Jackie added: “I am passionate about what I do and I want to share it with other people.”

She has exhibited her work in London’s Bankside Gallery and has even been invited to showcase her art in Palais Schonborn, Vienna, and Agora Gallery in New York.

Honiton Information Centre is run by Honiton and District Chamber of Commerce and is based in Lace Walk car park.
