Of herself and her work, Stockport resident Jackie Wagg says:
“My energy and motivation comes
from the ordinary streets and buildings of my environment
which has a particular interest and importance, maybe partly
because it seems to be disappearing even while I am painting
it in some cases.”
Jackie graduated in 1984 with a First Class
Hons Degree in Fine Art. Subsequently, she exhibited at the
National Portrait Gallery London, Royal Academy, the Royal Festival
Hall, in Whitechapel, the Williamson Art Gallery and Stockport
The Victoria Albert Museum National Art library
purchased the artist’s book of etchings and linocuts for its
collection in 1991. An exhibition of the work was sponsored
by English Heritage in 1992.
The artist has exhibited widely in group
exhibitions in the UK and USA.
She has been featured in Cheshire Life
Jackie won a prize for her painting ‘Stockport
Viaduct’ at the Williamson Museum and Art Gallery Merseyside
in 2006 and The Wirral Society of Arts Presidents Prize for
her painting ‘Cerulean House’ in 2007.
A trained teacher and musician, Jackie has
combined a career teaching music and painting.
