Jacqui Hawk is a native of Edinburgh, Scotland and began her career in the arts over 25 years ago and now resides near Boston, Massachusetts. She is an experiential artist, impacted by a deep visceral connection to her soul and the innate struggle to depict her intimate feelings and views on to the canvas in a spontaneous and abstract self-expression. Each of her paintings are emotional in nature and a metaphor for her life’s journey, from Scottish origins, travels around the world, personal struggles and challenges, events in society. They embody the magic and whimsical illusions of a child and the strength and wisdom of a woman with an old soul.
She works mainly in acrylic and mixed media, including wax, pearlescent powders, gesso of different consistencies, stained glass pieces, decoupage, gold/silver leaf, and unusual objects she finds washed up on the beach. Her recent compositions are organic and primitive in nature and reveal a range of emotions from sadness, hope, peace, renewal, right through to euphoric joy.
Her work has been featured in solo, invitational juried exhibitions and represented in private and corporate collections in the US, Europe and Asia. Jacqui has also been the recipient of a 1st place award in mixed media at The Greeley Park Art Show. For more information on current and past juried exhibits, please see the Exhibit page.
