About the Artist
Jacqueline Marr is one of Scotland’s finest figurative contemporary artists. Jacqueline predominantly paints the figure in oils, patiently producing a small number of paintings each year, a virtue that benefits her collectors. Jacqueline's mastery and attention to detail is also accentuated in her series of feathers and wings paintings, again displaying her passion for bringing the paint to life.
Much emphasis is placed on the mastery of Jacqueline's skill and her perfectionist style, which is evident throughout the exquisite detail and every brushstroke of each piece. Her use of light at times echoes her influence of the old master techniques employed by Caravaggio and Rembrandt famed for their use of chiaroscuro.
Jacqueline has exhibited extensively in galleries and art events throughout the UK and Europe, whilst undertaking numerous private and public commissions. Collections include Royal Scottish Academy Archives, Edinburgh, Halifax/Bank of Scotland, The Royal Bank of Scotland and Standard Chartered Bank London and Dubai. Jacqueline’s artwork has been featured in many publications and on television broadcasts including Grand Designs, Channel 4 in 2006.
