About Us

Zen and the Art of Art is a series of books and training systems by multi-award winning artist and teacher, Jacqueline Hill.

Jacqueline Hill gave up her childhood dream of being an astronaut when the NASA manned space program was closed. Since walking away from a lucrative twenty year IT career, she has been a full time professional artist and won many awards and broken records with art sales. She has had huge success inspiring and teaching hundreds of complete beginner adults how to draw and paint beautiful paintings that they never thought possible.

She runs her own professional art gallery, art school and studio practice in the leafy outskirts of Brisbane, Australia. Jacqueline lives on the country property alongside her studio, with her sculptor husband and their crazy Burmese cat.
