Contemporary textile artist creating illustrative and abstract style art inspired by the beautiful Southwest corner.
I am a professional textile artist living and working in the South Hams. I am best known for my illustrative work, which is filled with colour and light – sometimes with witty references such as my sassy drinks pieces and more often showcasing my take on the natural world, such as my vibrant florals and sun-filled seascapes. I love to explore the endless possibilities that textile art brings and each day my imagination is sparked by my glorious Southwest surroundings as well as the intricacies and textures of nature.
In 2015 I was very honoured to be awarded ‘Best Up & Coming Artist’ by the Fine Art Guild. Since this time I have exhibited across the UK and am very fortunate to have a growing number of collectors. I work from a charming country studio and gallery in the South Hams which is open to the public – please see my website for current opening times.
My work is available as original artworks and limited edition Giclee prints. Please visit my website http://www.jackiegaletextileart.com to view my current collection.
