Jacqui Harris is a contemporary artist working with an extensive range of materials and techniques. These include oil painting and mixed media, various forms of printmaking, stitch and found objects.
I have always had a love of observing and recording elements of nature but it was not until 1996 that I had the opportunity to study at a Btec Diploma level in Foundational Studies of Art and Design, obtaining a Distinction. I then went on to Plymouth University to complete a Ba (Hons) Fine Art specialising in Printmaking and Textiles.
Since then I have taught art in schools and on an individual basis, and provided workshops in monoprinting and collagraphs to both adults and groups of children.
In my own work I aim to create an enjoyment of texture and of the beautiful colours that are so important to me. I use various media and processes as I love the layering and surprises that occur in working this way, and it also helps me to achieve the ‘ephemeral’ quality that was once noted about my work by the prominent Cornish artist, Anthony Frost, on viewing some of my paintings.
