Jacqui moved to Margaret River almost 40 years ago, chasing the surf after winning a number of competitions through her teenage years. She is inspired by the region's stunning coastline, using vibrant colours and intricate detail to showcase the patterns, light and texture of the natural landscape.
Her work nods to an early interest in fantasy, mythology and spiritual connection with nature, inviting the viewer to lose themselves in the long, warm days of an endless, magical summer.
