One of the New Zealands’ favourite water colour artists, Jacky Pearson, will be holding a solo exhibition at Petone’s Alfred Memelink’s Artspace Gallery in March and April. Jacky lived in Eastbourne for many years but has recently moved to the countryside in the Wairarapa. Although she’s now living over the hill, she still returns regularly to teach in the Hutt and paint the city and harbour that provides her ever changing inspiration. Her amazing atmospheric paintings of the Wellington city and local region magically draw the viewer in and allows them to linger a while, in a moment of time, to re live and experience everyday scenes we know and love. This exhibition, her first solo at Alfred Memelink’s Artspace Gallery, will include a selection of her favourite spots around Petone and the city.

Jacky is a multi award winning professional artist and tutor, not only widely popular at home in New Zealand but she is also an internationally recognised artist and her works are held in private and public collections both here and overseas. As well as being a talented artist, Jacky is also an amazing and highly sought after teacher. She holds regular master classes in NZ, Australia, UK and Holland and also teaches in Belgium, India and Greece. Jacky has a magical way of teaching and sharing her skills, she believes anyone who wants to, can paint and express themselves, it is the desire that creates the talent, the rest is just hard work and some good tuition skills. She has introduced many budding artists to the joys of watercolour painting Jacky is fascinated by light and atmosphere which is the driving force for her paintings. Whilst she specialises in watercolours, loving the sense of freedom and spontaneity, which this medium does best, oils, pastels and charcoal are also a frequent part of her work.
