Jacqueline Byrne

Jacqueline lives in Wiltshire, England and after some previous lives, got her Creative Arts degree in 2013 as a mature student at Bath Spa University. The work reflects the native wildlife and landscape.  Jacqueline is conscious of her connection with the natural world and drawing animals and landscapes has become a way of honouring the Earth and celebrating the interconnectivity of all life.  Her drawings on wood use graphite and coloured pencils.  She uses the negative space as part of the drawing and is conscious of the quietness and sense of space this can give, and likes the idea of leaving out everything that is unnecessary. Using wood provides a warmth and texture and works to complement the natural subject matter. There are observational drawings of animals and there are drawings that are more from memory and imagination
