Jackie Penfold is from Hanover, Ontario. She joined the Saugeen Artists Co-op in October 2011. When she was a teenager, Jackie painted with watercolours, oil paints, and did pencil crayon drawings. In the 1990s, she discovered that she liked painting with acrylics, when she did folk art painting. She enjoyed the bright colours that resulted, and continued to paint in that medium. For her, painting is a very enjoyable experience. Her paintings consist of flowers, nature, scenery, and people engaged in everyday activities.
