Exclusively representing

Jacqueline Bissett

With an expertly contoured line and a few dashes of her brush, British artist Jacqueline Bissett captures the design of a garment and the essence of a collection in a seemingly effortless manner. However, this sublime skill has been built up through over 30 years in the industry, earning her position among the world’s leading fashion illustrators.
Since graduating from Epsom College of Art and Design in the 1980s, Jackie has been illustrating magazine articles, billboard advertising, book covers and jewelry brochures, with her work also appearing on scarves, handbags, bed linen, bathroom accessories and kitchenware. She has helped houses like Thomas Sabo to establish their brand identities, and today is a leading live illustrator working at events and ceremonies around the globe.

Approach

Jackie often uses photographic references when she does her sketching, bringing elements together to form her final composition. She takes photos everywhere she goes, for later use, and updates her palette according to what’s on the catwalk.

Styles

Jackie has two styles. Her watercolor style sees splashes of color bled onto a wet page. Black lines are added to give the forms stronger definition, for a playful and quickly executed finish. Her second style is collage, using Letrafilm to transfer blocks of color onto the page, building the illustration from shapes and lines and augmenting the image with Pantone pens.

Client list

Jackie’s clients include Givenchy, Escada, LVMH, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Thomas Sabo, Kurt Geiger, Louis Vuitton, The BAFTA Awards, Giorgio Armani, Lexus and more.
