Mixed Media Flower Class
Presented By: Jacqui Hawk
In this two-hour class, you will enjoy the therapeutic process of creating a mixed media flower using collage, beads, buttons, and special personal objects. There are no set design rules; the instructor will encourage independent thought while encouraging the use of unique and personal touches.
All materials will be provided. The canvas size is 16 x 20".
Please feel free to bring a few personal beads, buttons or nostalgic objects for the center of the flower.
INSTRUCTOR: Jacqui Hawk
,Jacqui Hawk was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and grew up in the English Lake District. In 1994 she moved to the United States and now lives on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
She began her career in the arts over 30 years ago. She is an experiential artist, impacted by a deep visceral connection to her soul and the innate desire to depict her intimate feelings and views onto the canvas in a spontaneous, raw and abstract self-expression. Color choice and formal elements are spontaneous and intuitive and driven by her own internal dialogue, emotional in nature, and a metaphor for her life’s journey from British origins, travels around the world, personal struggles and challenges, as well as events in society. They embody the magic and whimsical illusions of a child and the strength and wisdom of a woman with an old soul. She brings an emotional voice and dialogue to the struggles of friends and strangers and visually transcends the impact of that meeting, the lessons learned, the inherent truths in color, pattern and texture.
She works mainly in acrylic and mixed media, including wax, pearlescent powders, gesso of different consistencies, stained glass pieces, collage, gold/silver leaf, and unusual objects she finds washed up on the beach. Her recent compositions are organic and primitive in nature and reveal a range of emotions and narrative expression of joy, hope, peace, renewal, enlightenment and self-awareness.
