Jacqueline Williams, 1962 - British painter

"I first met Jackie Williams when she was a student at the Royal Academy Schools in the mid eighties. Already I could see she was following her own particular vision which had nothing to do with being consciously innovative or modern. Already as a student she showed a toughness and determination to swim against the tide if necessary, for she would not be drawn along by any current of fashion.
Jackie's work is a celebration of nature, of beauty, and of light, and being celebratory she touches cords in her followers and reveals to them a world, her world, to which they can respond.
Not for Jackie the heavy introspection of much of the work the critics seem to extol today. Her work is in the main-stream tradition of British painting in the twentieth century, from the Camden Town and Euston Road Schools through New English painters like Sickert and Steer; a worthy follower of that greatest of English women painters, Gwen John.
Her art is based on a personal vision expressed through sound craft, fine drawing, a wonderful sense of tonal pitch and a highly developed sense of colour.
Jackie is like a fine musical instrument through which the themes of nature pass, and as each year passes she is tuning that instrument more and more finely in order to express deeply and subtly the nuances of nature to which she responds" - Ken Howard R. A.
