Jackie Berridge lives and works from her home studio in the rural town of Southwell, Nottinghamshire. She graduated in 1995 with a BA in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University specialising in abstract painting and drawing. Her work took a new direction when she embarked on an MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art (Anglian Ruskin University) when her paintings became more figurative.
Jackie has been the recipient of many prizes and participated in numerous group shows and solo exhibitions, showing internationally and locally in many different venues.
In 2007 she set up and managed Harrington Mill Studios and gallery in Long Eaton, Nottingham where she organised and curated exchanges and exhibitions locally, nationally and internationally including Sweden, Greece, Chicago and France.
