Oodles Of News!

I've so much news I can almost call this a bumper edition! There's been heaps of activity both in and out of the studio and the year is turning out to be very exciting! As you will shortly read, I'm about to start the biggest project yet! 

London Success

The Country Living Spring Fair at Alexandra Palace was fabulous!  I created a mini version of my studio which was definitely worth the effort! April seems a long time ago now! Thank you to those that came to visit, especially those that travelled from the West Country! It was great to see some familiar faces as well as meet lots of lovely new ones. 

Latest Work


A punchy tropical number! My love of colour and texture shines through this one.  Sailing boats on the horizon give this vibrant piece distance and perspective, taking you into  the picture where, hopefully, you will stay and enjoy the escape! I sold the original in London but limited edition prints are available!


Please follow the link below for more details about this piece.


Stroll In The City

A romantic stroll in the best city in the world...

This textile artwork was inspired by my many visits to London and all I love about it. A city piece with a twist of nostalgia, romance and of course city traffic!

Seems like yesterday that these telephone boxes were the only way to make a call! 

Limited edition prints available! (sorry this original is also sold!) Here's the link https://www.jackiegaletextileart.com/products/stroll-in-the-city

Country Show

Good old fashioned countryside fun!! 

This textile artwork is inspired by a much loved quintessential English event - the country fair! Agricultural shows are rife throughout my part of the world and I love them.  Everything we know and love about these fun-filled days is here.  Animals proudly on show, shiny tractors, classic cars and so much more.  I will be at the Yealmpton show this year with my work courtesy of estate agents Marchand Petit. You'll find me in their marquee which is sitting proud in the centre of this piece!

The original is sold but prints are available. Here's the website link for further details


Theatre Royal Exhibition!!

I am super delighted to announce the next venue of my solo exhibition!! The wonderful Theatre Royal in Plymouth! The exhibition will run from 8th December until 26th January.  SO exciting!

I will be revealing a brand new collection of work which will be seen for the first time at the show. I may go rather quiet for a few months now!  I'm currently sketching, planning and working on ideas for this very exciting project.

The exhibition will be on the first floor and open to the public whenever the theatre is open. There's a fabulous cafe too (in case you didn't know!) 

There will be some 'Meet The Artist' days and these dates will be confirmed nearer the time.  

Please see diary dates below for details of the preview.

Art Display In Plymouth Offices

I am delighted that legal firm Womble Bond Dickinson have chosen to fill their lovely bright Plymouth offices with my artwork! They kindly hosted a wonderful preview of the exhibition last friday where we also raised a great amount for Jeremiah's Journey, a local children's charity we both proudly support. It was a wonderful evening and I was delighted to sell some artwork and of course help this special charity.  Thank you to all those that joined us.

Gallery On Trip Advisor!

My gallery is now listed on Trip Advisor!  If you use Trip Advisor and have visited the gallery, I would hugely appreciate a review!  I'm quite tucked away in my country village studio and this is a great way to let people know about my gallery.  

In case you didn't know, I'm open tuesday to friday 9-4 and weekends by appointment. I often work on saturdays so please get in touch if you would like to call in.  

If you have a moment to do a review, I'd be very grateful!
