About Jackie

Jackie Morris is an internationally best-selling author who lives in a small cottage on the Pembrokeshire coast. Originally from Birmingham, Jackie visited Pembrokeshire over 20 years ago for the weekend and never left. She shares her home with her two children, her beloved cats, and two dogs.

Jackie’s work is informed by her deep love of nature, exploring the worlds of bears, cats, birds and whales. She combines these explorations with her dreamlike vision in which all of her work is immersed. In September 2014, Jackie published her first book with Graffeg, Cat Walk. She has written and illustrated books for over twenty years, both her own titles and illustrating for others, but has said that on a personal level no book has ever brought her as much joy as Cat Walk.

Jackie’s second book with Graffeg, Queen of the Sky, was published in May 2015. It is the true story of Ffion Rees who rescued a peregrine falcon from the sea and dedicated eight months to restoring her back to health before setting her free into the wild.

The Quiet Music of Gently Falling Snow is collection of twelve illustrated folk tales, based around a series of musically-themed illustrations first created by Jackie for Help Musicians UK. The book was published in September 2016.

Graffeg have published new editions of two of Jackie’s children’s books, The Ice Bear and The Snow Leopard, in September 2017. Both books have been reproduced in a large, deluxe format, matching the high production quality of The Quiet Music of Gently Falling Snow.

Graffeg have a steadily growing range of Jackie Morris Greetings Cards featuring illustrations from her best-loved books for adults and children.

Prints of Jackie’s original paintings for Queen of the Sky, along with other favourite paintings, are sold by Graffeg.

In November 2017 Graffeg launched The Lost Words postcard pack, featuring artwork and extracts of poetry from The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris.

The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris, published by Hamish Hamilton, is set to be one of the outstanding illustrated books of 2017, making the shortlist for Waterstones Book of the Year. A selection of the lost words and their illustrations have been chosen from the book for release as a set of 20 large postcards in a gift box, published by Graffeg.

Jackie Morris’s stunning original artwork is accompanied by extracts from Robert Macfarlane’s lyrical acrostic poems on the reverse. The text and image pairings seek to re-establish a range of words, such as ‘acorn’ and ‘kingfisher’, into the vocabulary of children, at a time when our understanding and teaching of the natural world can be seen to be diminishing.

Available now, £12.99

“A connection with trees and woods helps people find inspiration, inner calm and mental balance. Author and journalist Tobias Jones and poet Zaffar Kunial are both featured in Arboreal, a Common Ground collection of woodland writing. They were joined by Jackie in discussing the role of trees and woods in finding inspiration and mental balance in our lives.”

The event is available to listen on the Hay Player website.
