b 1965, Jarrow
Jacquie Boyd initially studied at art at Newcastle before she graduated from Lincolnshire College of Art and Design in 1987 having studied Illustration and Graphics. She began her working life as a visualiser and illustrator in the London advertising industry.
After time served in ad agencies in Edinburgh and Newcastle, Jacquie concentrated on developing her own children’s stories and freelance illustration work and editorial work for clients such as ICI and Bank of Scotland.
She then spent ten years teaching graphic design and illustration at Newcastle College of Art. In 2002 Jacquie began to focus on painting and found immediate success with her iconic canvases at exhibitions in Newcastle.
Jacquie’s first North East solo, multimedia show in the summer of 2008, led to great critical acclaim: a show in which she examined her own childhood, teenage obsessions and effects of religious routines, through a collection of oil paintings, mixed media box sculptures, video and a stunning installation using over 300 hundred teenage dolls loaned by the public.
Jacquie’s most recent illustration work has been used by clients including The Celebrity Big Brother House, The Sunday Times Magazine, GQ, Scope, Adidas, Instyle Magazine, Tatler, Cosmopolitan, Toyota, The Telegraph as well as storyboard work for advertising.
Jacquie also accepts private commissions. If you have an enquiry, please contact us.
