Today’s Learning Disability Awareness Week featured artist is quite the woman! The amazing Jacqui Smyth, by Aspire tutor Alison Mitchell.
“Jacqui Smyth has been working recently on a series of drawings inspired by the music, sleeve art and photographs of some of her favourite musicians.
Working mostly to quite a small scale, her drawings relate the vitality, abandon and glamour of her chosen subjects. She’s a big music fan and loves to pinpoint a particular time and place where she remembers listening to any given piece of music.
As a dj on Sunny Govan radio her tagline is ‘Glasgow’s answer to Edith Bowman’.
She has been a regular artist in our Aspire group for the last year and has made consistently beautiful and vivid work exploring print, silk drawing and paint alongside masses of gorgeous drawings on paper and card.”
