Born and educated in Busselton, Jacqueline completed her training to become a registered nurse before her career path turned and she became a full time mum…and part-time artist.
With only a short course in fashion design as her formal art learning, Jacqueline’s artistic talents first were manifested in modelling and sculpture. Her interests then turned to ceramics, in particular majolica and she produced many works showing her innate sense of colour and design.
Jacqueline’s partnership with ceramic expert Rudolph Verschoor proved to be another huge career shift and the pair combined their respective talents to produce many international-class mosaics. These were hallmarked by intricate designs using a variety of materials including coloured marble, precious metals and Italian tesserae glass tiles.
Their works are displayed in private residences, commercial premises and public buildings throughout Perth.
Jacqueline’s and Rudolph’s reputations were such that they were commissioned by the Kings Park Board to provide an entry statement to the new Botanic Gardens and their stunning kangaroo paw design proved to be so effective, two further works were subsequently commissioned by the Board. In planning and implementing their designs they have used classical methods together with innovative techniques that they have perfected.
The brilliance of the glass tiles used in the mosaic works provided the catalyst for the next extension of Jacqueline’s artistic advancement—the design and crafting of the Dichroic glass jewellery. This glass was developed by NASA for use in the space industry, its beauty is unique with the iridescent colours so compelling and exciting as a fashion accessory. Each dichroic piece is hand made and shaped into modern artistic and unique designsClose Bio
