Jacqui Lewis
Visual Artist, Art Tutor & Creative Arts Therapist
Colour, gesture and the essence of subjects are fundamental facets to Jacqui’s artwork. Elements of figurative expressionism alongside pop surrealism and street/urban art give her inspiration and passion in her quest to create. Jacqui explores the figures central to her work initially through charcoal. Acrylic paint is used to help give body and soul to the forms as she gets to know the figures she creates in an emergent process. It is through this approach that every image has its own story.

After studying Textile Design and Fine Art at RMIT and completing Graduate Diploma of Education, furthered with Rudolf Steiner Teacher Training, and a MA in Creative Arts Therapy at MIECAT, Jacqui continues to teach visual arts both in and out of the formal education setting. She runs her own business, Khokho Art offering commissions, classes, creative counseling and art therapy sessions and workshops.
