Artist Jacqueline Quinn spent most of her adult life as a social worker, where she regularly saw much suffering and social deprivation, but she says nothing like the the scale she's seeing due to the Covid crisis. Every day large numbers of families with children can't afford to put food on the table. Jacqueline says no child should have to go hungry.
She's been equally moved by those who are trying to help raise awareness of the situation and to help in whatever way they can. This spurred her to join them during the first lockdown in 2020 when she raised almost £2000 for local food charities from sales of her work.
As a result of the ongoing crisis, Jacqueline spent the summer painting special pieces to help raise more money. She'll give the food charities 25% from every sale of her work.
Jacqueline, who graduated in art, only returned to painting full time recently after retiring from her job, but already, her colourful, textured mixed media originals are highly collectable. Each piece is a one-off.
