Jacky Paynter’s work is based on her experiences in St Ives throughout the year: wild weather and stormy seas, sunny days and rugged walks. Jacky also finds inspiration in the working history that makes St Ives such a unique place, and in how today’s pristine holiday cottages were once home to the poorest fishermen and their families. Information from sketches and the odd photographic reference are often the starting points. The paintings evolve in an intuitive, expressive way; layers will go on and come off again. Jacky seeks out unusual viewpoints and compositions. Her paintings, in acrylic, oil or mixed media, capture the atmosphere of St Ives and show her love of colour, texture, line and drawing.
