Bio picture

Jackie Gallagher

Jackie has had a lifelong interest in drawing and painting and in 2002 decided to pursue her passion for art with formal studies in drawing, watercolour painting and botanical art at the former Springbank Visual Art Centre and the Spillane Studio of Fine Arts in Mississauga, Ontario.

Her love of nature and gardening is reflected in her meticulously rendered drawings and paintings.  She enjoys bringing botanical and floral compositions to life through graphite, pen & ink, colour pencil and water colour.

Jackie is currently President of the Botanical Artists of Canada (2015), and a member of Visual Arts Mississauga and The Thursday Artists.  She has participated in exhibitions at Gallery Streetsville, the Spillane Studio of Fine Arts, Visual Arts Mississauga (as an individual artist and a member of The Thursday Artists), the Lakeshore Art Trail and the Botanical Artists of Canada.

“I think that one’s art is a growth inside one.  I do not think one can explain growth.  It is silent and subtle.  One does not keep digging up a plant to see how it grows.”  Emily Carr
