Port Out, Starboard Home POSH Original Art is where you will find both original pieces and prints of work by artist Jacqueline Hurley

Jacqueline Hurley’s War Poppy Collection is her tribute to our Armed Forces and a remembrance to all those fallen and injured in past campaigns. She paints to evoke emotion, reflection and remembrance.
Being one of the final generation whose grandparents lived through the Second World War, Jacqueline has a strong desire to remind people through her art that the freedom they enjoy came at a price. Remembrance Day is every day.
Jacqueline began painting The War Poppy Collection as a remembrance and tribute to a friend and Royal Marine, who was tragically killed whilst serving in Afghanistan.    
This was the inspiration for the artists oeuvre of 24 paintings created as a personal thank you to our Armed Forces and their families.
“The paintings flow from my heart onto the canvas. Although my scenes depict war, I try to bring an element and sense of peace to my work; this being what we all hope for and what lives have been sacrificed for.”
“My remembrance art is highly textured and feature a lot of layers. What is hidden is equally as important as what is visible. This represents the mind and the long term suffering which war often inflicts.”
Jacqueline paints in a modern and expressionistic style, using the stark redness of the worldwide symbol of remembrance – the scarlet corn poppy; to create contrast against gritty impasto, impressionistic landscapes.
All her paintings feature silhouettes which often allow her images to become more personal and sentimental to her audience.

Jacqueline’s military poppy paintings have quickly become extremely popular and well received since she first started painting them in October last year. Her pieces are often described as poignant and evocative and have touched the hearts and emotions of many, keeping the importance of remembrance in the forefront of people’s minds and reaching and connecting with many people from all over the world.
Jacqueline recently felt extremely honoured to be invited to exhibit the complete 24 piece War Poppy Collection at The Royal Albert Hall in London, for the Festival of Remembrance 2015 by The Royal British Legion, whom she donates to from sales of her art.
Her images have also appeared in a number of publications and have been used for cover images for magazines including Army & You Military magazine. Jacqueline has also been a guest on BFBS to talk about her art.
