J.Philip’s paintings have a spontaneity which captures a moment in time – the essence of a place or the ephemeral colour of wild flowers recently gathered from the shoreline.
Her subject matter is transformed by the intensity of her colour combinations, often juxtaposing or layering complimentary colours to create a ‘sensory vibration’. While working with raw pigment mixed with oil onto canvas she creates a rich tapestry of colour and luminosity of light.
While living & painting in Edinburgh Jackie spends time traveling in search of new challenges and inspiration for her paintings. She has been the recipient of many prestigious awards including the British Institute Fund, Italian Government Scholarship and the Tigh Alisdair Ruaraidh Residency which introduced her to the Hebridean islands. Further afield, her travels have taken her to Asia where the colours & culture of the east have influenced her paintings and simplicity of composition.
Since completing her post graduate studies at the Royal Academy Schools, London, Jackie has been painting full time as a professional artist and lectured in London, Florence and Auckland.
Philip has exhibited abroad and in the UK where her paintings have attracted widespread attention and can be found in corporate and private collections in the UK, Italy, Barbados, the Americas, Hong Kong and Australasia.
