As a Surf coast artist and educator Jacki Burke is highly regarded for her versatility as an artist by both peers and students alike.

“I’m never restricted to a particular medium; I use oil paints, acrylics and pastel with equal proficiency. The canvas, medium and subject speak to me and need to be portrayed accordingly.”

I’m inspired by colour and literally paint because I have to, I wake up with ideas, I see inspiration everywhere and love telling a story with light and shadow with the brushstrokes”

Her passion is creating in paint and pastel, however Jacki will step it up to mixed media and resin for added inspiration. As a successful exhibiting artist, Jacki’s work is collected both locally and abroad.

Jacki has taught art for over 20 years in weekly painting classes & weekend workshops from her Torquay Studio. The classes vary for beginners to masterclasses in Oils & Resin with people travelling Australia wide to attend.

Jacki is also happy to discuss commissions and collaborative projects.


"As a complete beginner I couldn’t believe how well my Resin piece turned out Jacki is a generous and kind teacher.I’ll be booking in for the masterclass"

"The one-day oil painting workshop was amazing. I still can't believe I finished a piece in oils that I have now framed and my family enjoy seeing it."

"Although I was nervous to create a large piece Jacki encouraged me to have a go at the BIG CANVAS workshop. It was so liberating and the end result is fantastic. It now hangs proudly in my lounge and I get so many amazing compliments.  A huge thanks to Jacki for  her guidance and patience."
