Jacqueline Bissett - Plumpton, East Sussex, UK based illustrator

Plumpton, East Sussex, UK
Jacqueline Bissett goes horseback riding for fun, uses yoga to beat stress, works while her kids are in bed, and keeps the world of fashion happy using the classic lines of her incredible figurative illustrations. She also loves all-night clubbing, house music and is inspired by the colourful characters of Brighton’s gay scene.

Training

Studying fashion design at the Bourneville School of Art for two years, Jacqueline then moved to the Epsom College of Art and Design where she did the Fashion, Promotion and Illustration course. She began working in Lynne Robinson’s studio before she’d even graduated, gaining commissions from a range of women’s weekly magazines.

Approach

Sketching is everything for Jacqueline. She uses a range of photographs as reference, piecing them together into an entirely new image. Everywhere she goes, she takes photos for later use. In terms of colour, she’s usually inspired by what’s on the catwalk this season.

Styles

Jacqueline has two styles. Her watercolour style sees splashes of colour bled onto a wet page. It’s a playful approach, quickly executed, and with scope to tweak the look and feel in tune with the client’s brief. Black lines are added to the soft watercolours to really give the images some definition. Her second style is collage, using Letrafilm to transfer blocks of colour onto the page and build up an illustration from shapes and lines. Letrafilm has been discontinued by Letraset, but Jacqueline has her own hidden stash. When certain colours run out, she augments her images using Pantone pens on tracing paper and cuts out the shapes or edges she needs.

We are crazy about the illustration...it's perfection. Stacy will be in touch but in the meantime I wanted to reach out and thank you personally. YOU are one of the best decisions I've made in publishing this book!

Working with Jacqueline on the recent covers I commissioned for the top ten bestselling author Katie Fforde has been a huge pleasure. She shows a deep understanding of the commercial requirements of the jacket brief but is able to inject each illustration with her signature flare and creativity which delight and surprise. They have definitely contributed hugely to Katie Fforde's recent success
Richard Ogle - Art Director, Cornerstone Penguin Random House
Thank you again for all your help in organising Jacqueline for our hotel launch. We have received nothing but wonderful comments from the evening and her presence was a real highlight for many guests. It got very busy at some points but she was an absolute professional throughout…sketching non-stop for five hours!!
Gina Traboulsi, FlamingoRose
I just wanted to thank you very much for the time and effort you put into the illustrations of my guests. Everyone was delighted with your portraits and think that you must have rose tinted glasses.
Lady Lipton
