15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Jacqueline Clarisse

France

From an early age I loved drawing and was passionate by animals. I was living with dogs and I would draw them very often.

From 2003 I started drawing and painting wild animals and pets on a full time basis. I exhibited wild animal paintings at Marwell International Wildlife Art Society Exhibition every year. I was a finalist at the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year in 2011. At that time my favourite medium was acrylic. Then I discovered pastel and it became my favourite medium.

I am a member of the Association of Animal Artists. In 2016 I was awarded "highly commended" at their annual Exhibition Competition for a drawing in pencil of a Greyhound.
