Lot 314 - Jackie Almond - Brown Chair
Time spent as a colourist of Antiquarian prints taught Jackie about the subtleties of light and tone and her aim is to communicate the essence of an atmosphere, which evokes stillness and silence. She studied English at university and literature has been a constant inspiration for her painting; places and sensibilities are also major influences. Her work has been exhibited in London galleries and in East Anglia. She has also exhibited, on two occasions, at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and twice been shortlisted.
For many years Jackie divided her time between London and France and her Interiors reflect that period in her life. She now lives on the Suffolk coast which provides a constant source of inspiration and she is part of the yearly Walberswick Open Studios.
