Hello! My name is Jacqueline Wild and I live in Cornwall in a little town called St Just - a place where pirates and smugglers used to roam and mermaids seduced the locals. I am inspired by local myths and legends as well as stories from around the world.
When I’m not being creative, you can find me in the water where I like to swim and surf. I love yoga too which keeps me happy and healthy.
I work a lot on my IPad to create my designs. I love working this way and feel that it suits my creative process really well.
I wrote and Illustrated a book of contemporary fairy tales called ‘Glitter and Earth:Tales of Magic and Wonder.’ The fairies included are all a little unconventional, with a yarn bombing sock fairy and a femme fatale Phoenix fairy whose lesson is one of strength in the face of failure.
I believe that the world is an incredibly beautiful and magical place - I hope to share this sense of wonder through my art work.
