Painter and print maker Jacqui Watkins creates her original works on paper – paintings, drawings and handcrafted prints.
The wonderful, decorative quality to Jacqui’s work in her use of line, texture and colour is influenced by her background and training as a Surface Pattern Designer at Loughborough College of Art. Jacqui went on to have a long career as a textile designer in the fashion and furnishings textile industry working in the UK and abroad.
Jacqui reawakened a love of drawing and printmaking with work her now encompassing watercolours, ink drawings and paintings, linocut, collagraphs, monoprints and plate lithography. You will find Jacqui’s beautiful framed and unframed landscape and nature inspired paintings and prints along with a selection of charming greetings cards at Derwent House.
