Contemporary British artist Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong, punchy images. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, Jacqueline exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients and collectors internationally.
Several works are represented by art publishers and her work has attracted interest from British companies, charities, organisations and press exposure in several national newspapers and magazines internationally.
Works from the "˜Life's A Beach ' The Signification of the Poppy´ series are iconic of her work. Tidal seashore scenes that feature the starling's sunset spectacle have inspired several seaside themed commissions.
Jacqueline is a proven businesswoman. She has created a range of art-printed products, such as deckchairs, cushions, bags and lampshades that are marketed under the Smart Deco brand.
Whether inspired by the street or the sea, Jacqueline's work has an edge: her paintings are consistently striking. Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind's eye to translate the vision.
A versatile artist and illustrator, Jacqueline's works have a wide appeal and are ideal for use in print. Several works are available for licensing purposes or for retail as prints. She is happy to meet clients and discuss ideas for commissioning a painting, a project or design brief.
