        b. 1927


        Jacqueline (Jackie) Hugo was born in Vancouver, BC in 1927. In the 1940s she studied privately, and at the Vancouver School of Art. In addition to British Columbia, she has painted in Eastern Canada, Europe, and Mexico.

        Hugo drew her inspiration from BC's mountain scenery, and worked with pastels to create the luminous cool effects which are her trademark. She prefered the gentle texture of pastels above other media to depict the subtle colours of wooded mountains, quiet shorelines, and rustic buildings, and because they are easier to backpack into remote locations. Although she concentrated mainly on scenery, her work also included portraits and still life.

        Jacqueline Hugo's paintings are in private collections in Canada, Finland, England, the US, Australia, West Germany, South Africa, India, and the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
