“Jackie's work is far more than just flawless wildlife painting. She captures the soul of her creatures - hares, otters, foxes, bears - revealing their true natures, and allowing us a rare glimpse into a world of magic.”

—Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat



The Unwinding is a pillow book, in the ancient tradition of Sei Shonagan, a book to tuck up the sleeve, in a pocket, under a pillow, containing fragments of dreams. Designed to be a portal, a talisman, it invites readers to enter its world, through word and image.



The Unwinding will be between 150 and 200 pages, rich in image, beautifully designed, hardback, with a dust jacket. It is a collection of paintings never before published.

Created over time, drawn first into the pages of sketchbooks, then emerging as large paintings in colour, each image carries many stories, and some of these are told in words to be read aloud or whispered in the head. Fragments of stories, part prose, part poem, catalysts for dreaming.



Unbound is a new way of publishing, one that invites a reader to be a part of the process of production, to follow the creative stages of a book from pitching the book to opening the wings of a book so the words, the images can fly into the mind of the reader. And as part of my work with Unbound they will reprinting my backlist, first by making Song of the Golden Hare available again to bookshops, libraries and readers.
