Based in United Kingdom
Jools is a contemporary artist from Worcester creating quirky figurative art work.
What started out as serene pastel drawings have evolved over the years into these unique character compositions that have become her distinctive calligraphic style. Hand drawn in black ink or painted in acrylic on white backgrounds, Jools' individual curving figures, often referred to fondly as her 'stickmen', owe their inspiration to the elongated figurines of Giacometti, the curvatures of Henry Moore's sculptures and Lowry's naive paintings of everyday life.
Her monochrome imaginative pieces cover such themes as music, sport, surfers and street scenes. The possibilities are endless and she is continually looking for new characters and scenarios. They vary in size from postcard to metre square and are a mixture of framed drawings and painted canvases.
Jools commissioned work continues to grow in popularity and incorporate many personalised and significant possessions to identify individual characters. She offers both family and wedding 'portraits'.
