Jackie Hollingsbee (Painting) grew up in Cornwall. Her mother was an artist therefore “it was instinctive for me to paint”.
Living abroad for several years necessitated career breaks from nursing but continued to facilitate her love of painting and pottery. On return, initially to West Cornwall, Jackie studied at the St Ives School of Painting, followed by St Ives Art Club and became a full time artist, working at Penzance and Newlyn Schools of painting and selling her work in several galleries throughout Cornwall.
Jackie now lives in Point and works with a group of artists in Flushing which has been inspirational in her move to more abstract painting. She is an Associate of the Penwith Society of Artists and has exhibited in the Penwith Gallery, St Ives.
