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

She started painting aroundfour years ago and her passion for art has grown and grown.

“I am passionate about what I do and I want to share it with other people,” said Jacqueline.

She has exhibited her work in London’s Bankside Gallery and has 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.
