Jacqui Dodds          

My practice revolves around memories of places visited and the objects within them. Images and feelings of these spaces are then then retraced and relived to create an essence in print and painting. 

In the autumn of 2016 I exhibited  'Reveal, Conceal' at BPN Architects in Birmingham and produced a series of six new screen prints that are inspired by the area around the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham.  

Some of my artwork is exhibited in museums and heritage venues, at present I have prints in Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, Shropshire and have been part of a touring exhibition of a ‘Cabinet of Curiosity’ partly funded by  Arts Council England. I have also been involved in art projects including Wightwick Manor for the National Trust and Enter Arts culminating in an exhibition in the house and garden.

Alongside this I deliver print workshops and have created a range of stationery and textiles from my own designs, some of which has reflected the spaces in which I have been researching.

I  live in Shropshire and print at Birmingham Printmakers.  In 2014 I was a finalist in the neo:Print Prize, and the Nottingham Castle Open exhibition Prize.
