Mother’s Day

Mother's Day

Sketch from a photo of my mum holding me as a baby. I lost her when I was 25, she was only 50 years old, far too young. My message in this post is to those who still have their Mum – it sounds obvious but you don’t know what you’ve got til its gone. Whatever they’re like, they’re still your Mum. Appreciate and make the most of them while you can, ask questions (and record the answers) about stuff no one else can tell you. It might be different when this happens in the later years, but life without them is tougher than you think. Especially when you’re mother now too.

About artbyjaxx

Contemporary British artist, Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong, punchy images that are rich in texture and colour. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, she exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients, collectors and high profile brands. Jacqueline’s inspiration comes from direct observation: subject matter is plucked from the world encountered every day. Some ideas evolve, others are reactionary. Thought-provoking themes explore today’s society, the media and cultural theory. Whether inspired by the street or the sea, Jacqueline’s work has an edge: her paintings are consistently striking. Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind’s eye to translate the vision.
