Not all of being an artist is aboutÂ painting, well I suppose it is if you want to be an amateur artist sitting at home, painting on wet afternoons, and filing the artwork under the bed to collect dust, and to be thrown away after you’ve died as your kids don’t know what to do with your weakÂ Â attempts at mastering watercolour.
I’ve never been that sort of artist, even when I was a teenager.
So, part of being aÂ “proper” artist is about looking for recommendations, to promote and show to the rest of the world that the artist is highly thought of, is professional in their approach and approachable in their profession.
This week I asked various people I’ve dealt with over the years for recommendations on my Linked-in account, and these were the responses that came straight back within hours of my asking. So, for those of you who aren’t on Linked-in to read them there, I’ll share them with you here….
Â “Jackie has always remained professional and personable all the time I have known her and found her to be a real pleasure to do business with.” JD
“I have known Jackie for a good many years now. I respect Jackie as a hardworking, professional artist, her working practices are of the highest standards her work encompasses a great variety of medium and subjects and I greatly admire her artistry.
On a personal level I find a very easy lady to communicate with, she is strait forward to deal with, very friendly and I very much look forward to working with her again in the near future.” RS
Â “Jacke is an artist with a great talent. Her paintings are unique and innovative and she knows how to connect with people in a great way. She is communicative, confident, relative and bright, and a real asset to the art world”

So, there you have it, that’s what they think of me.
In a way I’m humbled to read what they think, but I’m also proud to know that I come across in the way that I’ve always tried to be, as well as being pasionate about my art as well!
