Jackie Devereux PSGFA

Greatly influenced by Japanese art and the light of southern France, Jackie’s work ranges from pure contemporary watercolour on a large scale, to delicate pencil and expressive pen and ink – all experimental in nature. She has travelled extensively and as drawing is an integral part of her work and development her sketchbook is her constant companion. An experienced adult tutor, Jackie enjoys working with groups and sharing her ideas and techniques and watching others develop their potential.

Jackie’s work is well published and collected internationally. She has exhibited widely throughout the UK and France, as well as in the USA and Japan. She has shown with the RWS, RI and with the Society of Graphic Fine Art regularly in Menier Gallery, Southwark and Bankside Gallery, London.
