A relatively new area to Jacqueline’s vast portfolio is LIVE drawing at prestigious events such as Weddings, Birthday Parties, The Baftas, Fashion & Corporate (events)
She has worked at some top London hotels - The Ritz, The Savoy, Claridges and top stores such as Selfridges, Fenwicks & Harrods.
With an impressive client list including Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Atelier Swarovski, Space NK- Jacqueline wows her guests with her distinctive flourish of her pencils and brushes.
Some of her private commissions have been for Lords and Ladies for commemorative birthdays, drawing guests whilst they dine . Jacqueline has drawn at special birthday parties with famous celebrities in Somerset House and Mayfair nightclub Tramp where she works for many elite Events companies.
Recently the live drawing has taken Jacqueline to the Middle East, working in Bahrain and Kuwait for Van Cleef & Arpels. For their new store openings, Jacqueline drew @ 30 fashion portraits of guests who sat for less than 10 minutes to receive their very personal gift. Cartier invited Jacqueline to Le Bristol hotel in Paris recently where their very select guests were viewing the new collection. There she sat and sketched celebrity guests from all over the world.
Adapting to each new situation is vital. Some of the events are extremely well organised, whereas others create situations where Jacqueline has to adjust her method accordingly. "The main thing is to stay calm," she says "nobody wants to see a stressed out illustrator!" Some clients can be extremely particular, which is a challenge that Jacqueline thrives on.
