Jacqueline A Gaylard
Jacqueline A. Gaylard was born in England in 1972. For most of her childhood she lived in a village near Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire and this is where her passion for drawing and painting began.
Following her training as a Graphic Designer, she decided to try to convert her passion for painting into a full-time career. Having successfully exhibited her paintings it was not long before she fulfilled her ambition to become a professional Artist.
She lives with her family in Devon and delights in the abundance of wildlife and spectacular scenery that surrounds her studio.
Jacqueline paints a wide variety of subjects, but animals are undoubtedly one of her favourites, whether wild or domestic. She has always enjoyed painting cats and as a member of the Society of Feline Artists (S.O.F.A) she has the opportunity to explore the joys of portraying the complex feline form.
.Jacqueline always tries to sketch from life whenever possible, to gather as much information about colour, form and composition. Photography also plays its part in the creative process, for animals never stay still for long!
Acrylic paint has become her main medium, but occasionally she produces work in Gouache or Oil paint. She appreciates the fast drying properties of the water based Acrylic paint. Her painting technique is to use Acrylic in layers of washes for the first stages of the painting, creating form and shading. She then accurately applies layers of paint with smaller brushstrokes to develop depth and the intricate detail that brings her paintings to life.
