Jacqui Hawk, mixed media artist from Dunstable MA, is the featured artist for May at
263 Art Gallery located at 263 Main street in Nashua, NH.

Jacqui will be showcasing some new artwork, inspired by her recent trip to her birthplace, Edinburgh, Scotland

Refreshments will be served.


Jacqui Hawk is a native of Edinburgh, Scotland and began her career in the arts over 20 years. Each of her paintings are emotional in nature and a metaphor for her  life’s journey, from Scottish origins, travels around the world, personal struggles and challenges. It embodies the magic and whimsical illusions of a child and the strength and wisdom of a woman with an old soul. Her work is intuitive in nature and very spontaneous and always reflects what is going on inside of her.

She works mainly in mixed media, including acrylics, oils, wax, pearlescent powders, gesso of different consistencies, stained glass pieces, decoupage, and unusual objects she finds washed up on the beach. Her recent works, inspired by her trip to Scotland and reunion with family brings her past into her future, reconnects her with her ancient ancestry and culture.  The Scottish pieces are vibrant, unique and capture a certain sense of mystery and love for her homeland.
