Members of the public and Keirunga members had the pleasure of attending a workshop hosted by Multi award winning professional artist and tutor Jacky Pearson.
Jacky Pearson is fascinated by light and atmosphere, which is the driving force for her to paint. Whilst she specialises in watercolours, loving the sense of freedom and spontaneity that this medium does best, oils, pastels and pencil work are also a frequent part of Jacky’s work. Born in 1958 in England, Jacky and her family moved to New Zealand in 1991. She has loved to paint and draw from a very early age and although she has had a career in soil conservation and assisting her husband in a renewable energy business she now paints full time. Self taught, Jacky has also attended workshops with some of the world’s top watercolour artists.
Jacky exhibits work in New Zealand and overseas.
