Jacqueline Watt is a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art who exhibits both nationally and internationally. Watt’s work has been informed by the Scottish landscape and its elemental forces and is strong, expressive and colourful as a direct result. Her innovative use of paint and colour is firmly grounded in, and influenced by, her Scottish art education.
In 2011 she was awarded the prestigious Charles Rennie Mackintosh Residency in Collioure, South of France, which gave her the opportunity to explore and develop new directions and subject matter in her work. As a direct result of this in 2014, Watt was the invited contemporary Scottish artist to show alongside the Hayward Gallery's touring exhibition, Henry Matisse - 'Drawing with Scissors'. Her most recent work explores new still life colour palettes.
