Jacqueline is a London-based fine artist who uses art to explore and challenge traditional Jewish ideas in untraditional ways. She has used many different media and craft techniques - drawings, print, embroidery, tailoring, paper-cutting, knitting - to express the concepts. 
Jacqueline initially trained as an architect, and then went on to study to be a medical illustrator - learning anatomy and precise observational drawing along the way. But she got distracted by fine art, and its potential to develop and express ideas through meticulous making.
She also teaches in adult Jewish education, and her art has been a bringing together of the art studio and the beit midrash (traditional Jewish place of study and learning). In the artwork she will often quote the texts that have inspired, challenged and motivated her to form a response.
