Jackie grew up in the Australian countryside. When she was a teenager, she would meet Swifty, her bay gelding race horse to the paddock every day. This is one of the two emotion portraits we did together. It is called New Life. Because the commission process allowed her to highlight happy memories of a period that seemed chaotic. At that time, she had met her future ex-husband and her parents were going through difficult times. She realized that she was now at peace and that Swifty had been so important to her.
