 Jacqui Clarke, Painter and Engraver


After two years of arts preparatory school, she attended the famous art school in London, Hornsey College, where she graduated (Bachelor Honours). She also obtained her teaching degree in arts. She then taught art in schools and began exhibiting with other artists. After leaving England, Jacqui installed her studio, equipped with her engraving press, in Beaumont du Perigord.

While continuing her professional career as a painter and engraver, Jacqui teaches drawing, watercolour, painting and printmaking to youth and adults. She regularly exhibits her paintings and engravings, and participates in group exhibitions.


Jacqui loves to interpret nature and landscapes through paintings and engravings that she sometimes does simultaneously! Her etching technique is always at the service of creativity and sensitivity. She likes to vary the methods (etching on zinc, copper, wood or linoleum) to obtain different pictures each time. Jacqui also makes the most of the time needed for the steps to realize an engraving, by analyzing her line and correcting her plate. In addition, the choice of paper, ink, or adjustment of the press can still change the final print.
