Award-winning Rostrevor artist, Jacqueline Rooney, creates vibrant atmospheric, emotive art to enhance interiors and evoke happiness.
Graduating with a B.Ed (hons) Art & Design in 2000, Jacqueline was formally head of Art in a busy secondary school, before taking the leap of faith and handed in her notice a few years ago to pursue her lifelong dream to become a professional artist.
Jacqueline studied Interior Design to twin her passion for Art & Interiors as she feels the two are intrinsically linked. This has lead to building a strategic alliance with BBC 1 presenter of ‘The Repair Shop’ and furniture influencer, Jay Blades to elevate her profile, developing a joint project in homewares to mark her entry into the homewares and interior range via her own label.
Following this, she recently brought a beautiful period property back to life and opened her own Art Galley in the heart of Rostrevor, showcasing her own work and carefully curated pieces from other local makers.
It is a dream come true for Jacqueline to combine her love for Art & Interiors to create spaces that people will love for years.
