Jackie talks about this book:
Jackie was inspired to draw from a very early age by her father who used to sketch and take her on outings in nature.
“I remember walking in the park by the river, bank voles and weeping willows and bright flashes of kingfishers. I loved the ferry at Hampton where the ferryman pulled you across the river to a land of fields and blackberries, where my dad would walk with me and show me how to find birds’ nests and tales of when he was a boy.”
