About Jacky Pearson

Multi award winning professional artist and tutor Jacky Pearson is fascinated by light and atmosphere which is the driving force for her to paint. Whilst she specialises in watercolours, loving the sense of freedom and spontaneity that this medium does best, oils, pastels and pencil work are also a frequent part of Jacky’s work.

Born in 1958 in England, Jacky and her family moved to New Zealand in 1991. She has loved to paint and draw from a very early age and although she has had a career in soil conservation and assisting her husband in a renewable energy business she now paints full time. Self taught, Jacky has also attended workshops with some of the world’s top watercolour artists.

Jacky exhibits in galleries and holds Solo and joint exhibitions around New Zealand and overseas. Her work is held in private and public collections in NZ and abroad. A watercolour “Save our Trolleys” represents New Zealand in the permanent collection the International Museum of Watercolours in Mexico.

Jacky was awarded overall winner in the national Wai -Portrait Awards 2011 and in 2012 awarded public vote for “best in the show” Rotary Southwards art show. Her work features in numerous books, magazines and calendars including Denis Robinson’s books “NZ in Watercolour”, “Artists Impressions of NZ” and ”Christchurch, an artists tribute”. Jacky has also published her own series of three calendars painting all NZ’s classical coastal lighthouses and their researching their histories.
