Jackie Stevenson RSW

Biography

I was born and educated in Kirkintilloch, near Glasgow. I graduated with a DA in Drawing and Painting from Glasgow School of Art and went on to gain a teaching qualification from Jordanhill College of Further Education.

I worked in skills management until 2003 when I opened a small studio and gallery space in Hertfordshire, running workshops and community exhibitions. Moving to Newcastle, I worked from the Biscuit Factory Studios for 3 years before relocating to Cowal in 2016, where I now work from my home studio looking out at forest on one side and Loch Long on the other.

Statement

My work is landscape based and I enjoy trying to capture the colours, moods and textures of the west of Scotland, using my sketches of the environment around me to develop and explore new ways of using water-based media. I combine the use of collage with different surface treatments and acrylic ink, watercolour, pastel and pencil to create a personal interpretation.

Professional Bodies

I am a member of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour and an artist member of Paisley Art Institute.
