Jacquie Hughes is an emerging artist from Perth‚ Western Australia. Her charcoal drawings and abstract art have been sold in Australia and overseas.
She takes items from popular culture or children’s toys and reinvents them as works of art.
“I take toys and models that are sometimes only as big as a thumb and reproduce them to up to a metre tall. It changes and reshapes them into works of art, they become powerful and otherworldly. Children’s toys especially are magical and special and by recreating them as giant size only highlights and magnifies their joy.”
