Jackie Garner is a professional artist, art tutor and tour leader, based in Gloucestershire. Her art is inspired by the natural world, either realistic images of wildlife or abstracts based on natural pattern. Jackie enjoys working in watercolours for outdoor sketching but prefers acrylics for studio work. She exhibits regularly in both solo and group exhibitions, and her work is held in collections as far afield as South Africa, Trinidad and Australia. Jackie is the author and main illustrator of “The Wildlife Artist’s Handbook”, and writes regularly for Leisure Painter magazine. Jackie’s twin sister is Paula Wilson, head of marketing at Liberty Specialty Markets.
