Welcome to the website of Jacky (Jacqueline) Cowdrey.
My love of drawing started at school, beginning a lifelong fascination with the human form. I went onto study Fine Art and Illustration at Twickenham College, receiving a thorough grounding in life drawing and oil painting, and developing my love of colour.
I am Publicity and Exhibitions Secretary of the Dorking Group of Artists with whom I exhibit twice a year. I am also a member of the North Weald Art Group and won the John Yardley Award in their exhibition at Denbies in November 2019 for my painting 'Ole'. My home is near Epsom and Reigate in Surrey, where I have my own studio - and where I've hosted Surrey Open Studios and exhibitions in aid of The Samaritans with other artists and photographers.
In 2013 I was runner-up in the Caran d’Ache Museum Aquarelle watercolour pencil competition. I hold regular classes in my studio.
