January Artist of the Month

Jackie Cunningham

Exeter Fine Crafts is pleased to present Jackie Cunningham as our January Artist of the Month. Inspired by moments in her country home, as well as, New England landscapes with which she has an emotional and visual connection, Jackie’s representational oil paintings focus on revealing the beauty and feel of a particular scene or object.

A passionate painter, Jackie enjoys every aspect of oil painting. From placing pigment on her palette to making her first brushstrokes, she strives to create pieces that make people smile. Seeking to capture the overall feel or memory of a place or object, Jackie’s inspirations come from textures and “aromas.” She loves to paint flowers, “until you can smell them, or take them with you for a walk on a sunny day through a sunny pasture and smell the fresh air.” Although conveying this simple elegance to the viewer takes a lot precision and skill, it is the sheer joy of painting itself that enthralls Jackie. It is her hope that she not only conveys this joy to the viewer, but that they also become an active participant in her artistic vision.

Living in New Hampshire, Jackie feels fortunate to have so many wonderful scenic areas to paint. Having painted professionally for the past 15 years, Jackie is a member of the Newburyport Art Association, Andover Artists Guild, Rockport Art Association (Contributing Member) and Seacoast Artists Association. Having received many awards for her work, Jackie has exhibited her work in galleries throughout the state.
