Jackie Adshead

Chatham, Kent

Born in 1960, Jackie has been an artist all of her life, and her paintings now hang on walls all over the UK, in Europe, USA and Canada. Her wide range of artwork has been exhibited in the East Midlands, with the Guild of Erotic Artists at Beaumont Hall Studios in Hertfordshire, and at "Erotica", Olympia, London. She is also featured alongside her work in the Guild of Erotic Artists book (volume 2). She loves to create dramatic interest in her pictures, whether it's to paint an unusual landscape, or just to utilise dramatic lighting in her figure drawings or strong colour in her animal portraits. Delighting in the spontaneous tendencies of watercolour adds an interesting and distinctive look to her paintings, some of which are purposefully ambiguous, enabling the viewer to use their own interpretation of her artwork. She also loves to hide images, and humour within her paintings, whether it's a secret message, or an erotic couple hidden within a landscape, or even an erotic landscape where the couple are camouflaged as the features of the land itself. She is equally happy painting in oils, acrylics or watercolours and loves to draw with pencil or ink. She has also developed the very effective method of drawing using white pencil on black card which creates dramatic pictures by just picking out where the light catches the body and leaving the rest of the image to the imagination, in darkness. Jackie can also utilise many different styles, whether it is realistic, abstract, surrealistic, erotic, fantasy or camouflage art where something is hidden within the painting. She's just passionate about her art, whatever she paints! Jackie welcomes commissions on virtually any subject and is always happy to discuss any ideas you may have for a special painting or drawing.
