Jacque McNeill Paintings
Hello
My name is Jacque McNeill

My animal painting started with four hens, a fantastic birthday gift from my children. Delighted to watch the interaction of my first hens together I was hooked and the animal menagerie was about to grow.A surprise potbelly pig arrived and then another, when it became very clear we needed a small field which would then need to be penned off with escape proof fencing.
 

A surprise potbelly pig arrived and then another, when it became very clear we needed a small field which would then need to be penned off with escape proof fencing. The pens are now filled with my inspiration to paint, four hens became twenty, six ducks, two sheep, ten pigs. Surrounded with our delightful animals I endeavour to capture their expressions and character, their textures of fur, hair and feathers also the animal’s posture and my pets just love to pose.
