Jacqueline Watt

Jacqueline is a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art who exhibits both nationally and internationally. Working out of her studio in Edinburgh, Watt’s work has been informed by the Scottish landscape and its elemental forces and is strong, expressive and colourful as a direct result. Her innovative use of paint and colour is firmly grounded in, and influenced by, her traditional Scottish art education.

In 2011 Watt was awarded the prestigious Charles Rennie Mackintosh Residency in Collioure, South of France, which gave her the opportunity to explore and develop new directions and subject matter in her work. Her completed body of work has taken 18 months to develop and consists of an extensive range of vibrant and expressive paintings , reflecting Watt's highly original response to the colour, atmosphere and moods of the region incorporating motifs from the architecture, harbours and landscape.
“Watt: A painter to watch.......her looseness of style is bedded in sound training, formal subtleties and ever-fresh observation.” THE SCOTSMAN
