As a graphic designer working for many years with U.K and NZ constancies, Jackie has worked with countless recognisable premium brands and corporates. Along side her design work she has continued to follow her passion for art, with work held in corporate and private collections in England, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore.
PENCIL AND HAMMER* was established in 2013, formed out of a passion for art and all things vintage. Her painting and photography form the basis of many of the graphic prints and a huge collection of vintage ephemera is the ongoing impetus behind her retro prints. “ I am so lucky to live close to Muriwai as the ever changing beach and forest landscape provide a constant source of inspiration for my work”
* The Hammer and Pencil birds first appear in Alice in Wonderland in Tulgey Wood, making signs for Alice that read “Don’t step on the Mome Raths”. I’m often asked where the name came from. So now you know.
