ARTIST PROFILE

Jacqui Herrmann

Jacqui Herrmann is a distinguished Riverina artist who has long family and personal associations with Leeton, and is now located in Albury on the NSW/Victorian border.

Jacqui’s most favoured medium is acrylic on canvas, and her most favoured theme/s or style of artworks are landscapes and riverscapes, family pets and mistletoe flowers.

In the artist’s own words:
 “Acrylic paints for me are vibrant, quick drying and great for layering strong colours. I love layering paint with my hands, and brushes, to get the right sky, texture or details. I was an art student in high school and loved lunchtime in the art room with my friends. I drew a lot and took photos during my 20’s, and recommenced painting while I was raising my kids on the farm. I now enjoy expanding my repertoire to cover landscapes, river and streetscapes, family pets and mistletoe flowers.”

She has been very successful in many competitions and exhibitions, and is currently working on an ekphrasis exhibition (matching art with poetry) with Leeton writer-in-residence Sarah Tiffen.
