About Jackie Henderson

 
 
  • Biography
     Jackie graduated in Contemporary Art Practice in 2014. Art has always been a large part of her life as she worked within various sectors bringing out her creative skills as a children’s book illustrator, art therapist and self employed arts and crafts worker.

    Before moving to Glasgow 7 years ago to complete her degree, Jackie found herself living in a farmhouse in rural Angus on the east of Scotland. Her environment is a constant source of inspiration and features heavily in her work, translating it into quirky observations.Jackie’s work is very autobiographical. Her still life studies are an appreciation of the moment, encouraging us to value the world we have around us and right in front of our eyes.

    Her figurative pieces are observations and feelings transferred to the canvas and given space to breath.

    Working in acrylics, layers of colour are built up alternating paint and glaze, rubbing back to reveal previous layers of colour, so that what lies beneath is as important as what is visible on the surface. Textiles and college are added to give yet another layer of interest and texture.

    Jackie’s work is sold in galleries throughout Scotland and online, selling to private collectors worldwide.

    Venue: The Whitehouse Gallery, Kirkcubright


    As we pile on the woolly scarves and gloves with the festive season approaching, The Whitehouse Gallery invites you to come in from the cold to enjoy its last exhibition of the year. ‘Winter Warmer’ opens from 11am on Saturday 7th November and will be open until 31st December. All are welcome to attend the opening.

    Although this exhibition carries no theme as such, it does feature work which celebrates the beauty of this time of the year, with a wide selection of Fine Artists and Craft Makers. There will be everything from wee stocking fillers right up to impressively bold statement pieces, and much in between, a wide selection of unique gifts to suit all budgets.

    ‘Winter Warmer’ will include gallery regulars alongside some new artists to the Whitehouse. Showing for the first time are Jackie Forbes Henderson, Gilly Beech, Heather M Nisbet and Morag Lloyds.
