Jacquelyn was first inspired by a school trip to the British
museum where she saw the Horse of the Parthenon head. With a mixture of emotion from that experience and watching horses on the Heath at Newmarket as a child, their beauty, power and grace, a passion for horses was formed. Being around and working with horses and amongst other animals all her life contributed to her desire to try to recreate the 'essence' and individual character of the object in every piece she creates. Hares are another strong influence in her work. Self taught, she studies all her subjects, first doing lots of anatomical studies, sketching etc, then forms drawings of the ideas and finally a '3 D sketch' with wire, to see how the idea works from all angles, hoping to produce an accurate portrayal both of movement and character. Having worked in many mediums she is now enjoying working in bronze and experiencing first hand the foundry work involved in producing and finishing each individual piece. Each of her sculptures is limited to an edition of 25 and is signed by the artist and numbered accordingly.
