The eldest of 5, Jacquie scribbled and strummed her way through a tomboyish and happy childhood in the north east, drawing, writing and playing guitar, but always happiest when she could find her own space. She chose Graphic Design as her first route at art college in Newcastle in the mid 80s purely because it looked like the best route to being able to draw for a living. She couldn’t ever envisage herself doing anything else ( apart from being a rock and roll star and she quickly realised she was a much better artist than she was a guitarist!)

Jacquie loves to retain a retro comic feel to her images while taking a tongue in cheek pop at modern culture. She uses her work to communicate her own comments on the world by having fun with it where she can, and finds it a brilliant way to deal with life by laughing at herself and her own frustrations, feelings and the tribulations of getting older that we can all identify with!
