Jacqueline graduated from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 1983. She lived and worked in London for many years, and returned to Ireland, to the Beara peninsula in Co Kerry, in 2003.

She has exhibited widely, in solo and group shows, both in Ireland and abroad.

“Jacqueline O’Driscoll’s talent lies in her abstract aerial views which, although devoid of people, make subtle reference to the influence of man on the land,” wrote Daragh Reddin in Metro, on Jacqueline’s solo show at the Hallward Gallery, Dublin.

“O’Driscoll is just as sensitive to the ever-changing colours of the Irish landscape as she is to the people who make their mark on it. ‘Passing Rain’ is simple but wonderfully effective, the right of the painting covered in a fine maroon cloud, while ‘Early Green’ is just that – a verdant green in an inviting rural world.”
