Abstract artist Jakki Jandrell


Jakki Jandrell is a self-taught abstract artist whose natural and visceral depiction of human emotion is conveyed through her creative process; the struggle between the physical act of creating and the canvas.

"Piece's of Me" is a collection of works created with color and a raw texture which bear witness to the canvas becoming the physical expression of her own emotions, these works created over the pandemic period and earlier reflect the essence which is central to Jacqueline’s practice. It is her intention to break free from social expectations and let go of the obsession with perfection, allowing the viewer to gain an insight into the workings of her mind. Her artwork allows her to have some sense of control within this artistic field, as she gets to decide on each brush stroke, color choice, the texture, the use of negative space and the freedom to play. What drives her is the journey through the process to find enjoyment and acceptance for herself.

In her early twenties, Jacqueline was drawn to painting as an outlet to express herself. She was born in South Africa, raised in England where she eventually moved to Los Angeles to peruse acting. This opened the door to a whole new creative world. Having continued to paint alongside acting, Jacqueline continues to embrace her artistic career.

Her works consistently reflect a sense of solace, even in her abstract chaotic colorful paintings that happened during covid share a sense enlightenment.

"All I want to do is stop thinking and express myself. The day-by-day fight for some form of contentment, that is what I am exploring. I often find it difficult to articulate in words how I truly feel, especially in an environment with constant criticism and rejection art allows me to express myself cathartically and stay connected to who I am. My artwork is just an extension to different parts of me."
