Born in South Africa, Jaqueline Burgess is an Australian painter. As a semi- finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait prize in 2016- Jaqueline moves between portrait painting and landscapes painting. With early training in South Africa in Fine Art, Jaqueline traveled to Europe to work as an Artist, Muralist and Art teacher in a private school. Jaqueline creates works that reflect the Australian landscape. Her love of the land and coastline has influenced Jaqueline's work In a way that allows her to move between semi surreal landscapes with the intention of depicting light in its changing qualities. Primarily exploring the natural way in which light filters through trees and reflects off water, Jaqueline has compiled a body of work inspired by photographs and sketches she has collected on coastal and bush walks.  Each work portarying a memory of an emotion linked to a certain landscape at the time. The dream like quality of the subdued pallet creates a grounded visual engagement throughout the works.

"Landscape painting embues my desire to paint the beauty I see everyday, especially in the coastal area where I live. I’ve always imagined that my emotional response to the landscape could be put to canvas."
