Jacqueline Briggs

Unit 6: former Fish Shop

Since graduating in 2016 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design with BDesHons in Illustration, Jacqueline Briggs has been working from her studio in Inverness Creative Academy.

Much of her work is an exploration of nature and culture and how these two elements interact. Being from Papua New Guinean and Scottish heritage, these contrasting cultures and landscapes provide a source of rich inspiration.

Recently Jacqueline created a mural exhibited at Eden Court as part of the Scottish Black Lives Matter Mural Trail. She is currently exhibiting an installation as part of Dundee's 'Festive Windows' project.


From March 2020-October 2020 she worked on 'The Sea Inside' Cromarty community art project with fellow young artists Alice Taylor and Izzy Thomson researching local knowledge, sea stories and folklore surrounding the area resulting in a community artwork based around local's personal connection with the coast. This provided inspiration for a series of fish paintings based around the most commonly caught fish in Scottish waters. Jacqueline is in Unit 6 which had traditionally been a fish shop for many decades.
