Born and based in Nigeria, Jacqueline Suowari is a full-time ballpoint pen artist and draughtswoman. Her foray into art started from the early age of five and for the past decade, she has stunned her ardent collectors with magnetic pieces which over time, have grown larger than life. Jacqueline is motivated by the power inherent in the intriguing art of drawing. The thousands of ballpoint pen strokes which make up every single piece of her work, reveal the countless hours which it takes to achieve perfection in her eyes, with a single piece sometimes taking several months to complete. In each painting, she combines various elements of design to share her experiences and inspiration with the viewers. Suowari has participated in select group exhibitions in her country and has been featured in notable domestic publications including Chukwuemeka Ben Bosah’s book “The Art of Nigerian Women”, which chronicles some of the best artists Nigeria has to offer.
