Jacqueline is a process-oriented artist and qualified creative arts therapist (MATh) with over fifteen years experience in group facilitation and education.  She is the founder of Beautiful Wasteland and an educator at The MIECAT Institute, teaching post-graduate courses in art therapy. Her practice focuses on attending to what emerges in the collaborative space between artist, materials and environment and how these relationships may reflect one’s broader lived experience and processes in the world at large. She sees this practice of direct engagement with process as an opportunity to examine our habitual ways of being- personally and culturally, and explore alternatives for the flourishing of the self and the ecosystems we participate in.
