Jacqui Dodds

Artist, Printmaker

Jacqui has a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and works predominantly in printmaking.  

Jacqui is continually drawn to rich layers of human history within the built environment, visiting towns and cities alongside more rural locations.

Using silkscreen, linocut and blind embossing she distils memories of places visited and objects within them. Colour plays a significant role, whether subtle or vibrant. Using a limited palette or leaving areas untouched, she explores space and mood within images. Surfaces of her screen prints show layers of solid and transparent elements.

In contrast, Jacqui’s intricately carved blind embossed prints are devoid of colour, whereby the paper plays a significant role, revealing form and texture through shadow and light.

She is a member of the Printmakers Council London, Birmingham Printmakers and Wrexham Print Centre. Her work has been exhibited at Bankside Gallery London, Royal Cambrian Academy Conwy, Art Pavilion London, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, Mostyn Gallery, Theatr Clwyd, Barbican Library, and other galleries nationally.

Awards include funded projects by Arts Council England and Shropshire Council.  These include a DYCP project, Project Grant, new work for Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery; a touring Cabinet of Curiosity and two exhibitions marking anniversaries of the start and end of WW1.
