Jackie Hichens is coming to Logie Steading for an art exhibition. She is a Cornish born artist who now lives in Nethy Bridge in the Highlands.
Her passion has always been the countryside and the flora and fauna that lives in it. She paints anything from deer to insects, and trees to flowers, with a particular passion for our feathered friends the birds, usually in watercolour, inks or pastels on paper or canvas.
Some subjects are captured in her sketchbooks, but she likes to carry out thorough research before putting paint to paper, thereby capturing the character of the subject by fully understanding what she is seeing.
As well as selling her original paintings across the world she produces cards, mugs, clocks, coasters, and other items from the images, considering herself sometimes as much a designer as an artist.
