Jackie's miniatures really are remarkable, the attention to detail and uniqueness of each item is breathtaking. You simply can't get this kind of detail in commercial items, and infact with many hadmade items. Only a true artist can produce such fine quality.
Jackie does a great deal of research to make her tiny creations. “I am always watching animals and studying their different poses.” She reads a large number of books and finds great ideas at her local museums, The National Museum of Scotland and the Museum of Childhood. When there, she makes a lot of notes and sketches. Jackie gets many ideas from her children and from Celtic fairy tales. “Inspiration comes when I am walking and, most of all, when I am in my studio by the sea in Barra.” The longest time Jackie remembers spending on a single creation was a pair of antique style five-arm, very ornate candelabras. “I just love detail.”
In her early forties, Jackie is an easy-going, hard-working person. She recently finished a HND (Higher National Diploma) in Scottish Gaelic, a two-year academic program. She enjoys life, loves animals, nature, and being outdoors. Along with her husband Allan, three children, and Mara “a very clever Border Collie,” home is in the area of Liberton, Scotland. On the outskirts of Edinburgh, they live just five minutes away from the lively centre of the city. “We are lucky enough to have a great view of the castle and the Pentland Hills.”
Allan and Jackie have a second home (croft) on the isle of Barra, a stronghold of Gaelic culture and language. The croft is situated in the small township of Cleit. “We go to Barra three times a year, a total of four months,“ Jackie says. “At the top of the croft, we are renovating an old family croft house.” While Allan is working on the house, Jackie is busy creating miniatures in her studio by the shore at the bottom of the croft. The studio has an amazing panoramic view over the Atlantic Ocean.
