Portraits for NHS Heroes
She was very proud to have her portrait of paramedic Chris included in the book ‘portraits for NHS Heroes’, curated by Tom Croft and published in November 2020. Through the power of portraiture Tom wanted to honour the hard work, courage and endurance of the NHS workers on the front line of the Covid pandemic. His call through social media to the global artistic community, via the #portraitsfornhsheroes Instagram page, resulted in over 13,000 contributions of free portraits. 300 were selected to feature in this poignant, beautifully presented book. Jackie was delighted to have her portrait included.
The Shambles, Sevenoaks
Jackie has a new work of art on public display in the Shambles, Sevenoaks. The painting is a doorway to the medieval past: a life-size portrait of a young woman bringing her wares to market whilst carrying a lamb and a basket of goose eggs. The Shambles is a small square with its medieval roots in the heart of the old centre of Sevenoaks. It is nestled between the rear of shops on the High Street and London Road., TN13 1LJ. The word ‘Shambles’ is derived from shammel, the Anglo Saxon word for shelves, which were a prominent feature of open butcher shop fronts selling their produce. The site was a medieval market place and since then it has been the centre for many varied trades.
Over twenty years ago, Sevenoaks Council commissioned Juliet Simpson and Tom Cousins to create artwork depicting the medieval history of the Shambles. Juliet’s wall sculptures and Tom’s black and white murals have graced the area ever since. In 2020, Juliet embarked on a project to recondition her sculptures and to recruit other artists to decorate the nondescript black doors backing onto the Shambles. With the generous support of Sevenoaks Council and the involvement of Jackie and fellow artists, Melissa Hill and Franny Swann, this exciting plan is progressing.
