Jackie Duckworth

My first career was in genetics, but in 2006 I switched my allegiance to art, beginning with a life drawing class, progressing to the Access to Art course at CRC, and then studying Illustration at ARU. I became a full time printmaker, illustrator and textile artist in 2015.

History and legend are favourite themes in my printmaking.  My linocuts use striking compositions and a limited palette to tell their stories. Recent explorations in monoprint and collagraph allow for more expressive markmaking. I also love the challenges generated by more unusual topics in my illustration work.

I sometimes indulge my love of pattern in colour through more traditional textile artworks, often on commission.

I have been a member of Cambridge Drawing Society since 2015 and joined Cambridge Open Studios in the same year; I have exhibited across the UK, in Dublin and in Helsinki.
