Jackie Prachek

Aboriginal, Pictish, dot style, joyful, contrasting, colourful. Inspired by natural history, archeology, ecology, maps, physical and mental journeys. Acrylic on canvas or wood.

I don’t think in words but in pictures, so never go anywhere without paper and pencils. I worked a long time as a cartoonist and illustrator which helped my sense of design. I have Aboriginal and Pictish influences in style and narrative. I like acrylic because it doesn’t smell and I hand make my stretchers from old bed frames or up cycle them. Im given ideas from birds, animals, insects, water, light, rocks and my experiences. Im currently working with Pennine Artists on the theme of “Catchment” exploring the Sheffield Lakeland Landscape. I work outside or from memory, not from photographs. Current influences, Jeremy Gardiner and Keith Vaughan.
