Jacquie Boyd was born in Jarrow in the north east of England and studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Newcastle and Lincoln. Her early career began in the advertising industry in London at the tail end of the magic marker and gouache era, and the pre-Mac hands-on fast drawing and colouring techniques have hugely influenced the style of both her fine art and illustration work. Jacquie taught graphics and illustration at Newcastle College for many years before starting to paint and work freelance. She describes her work as fusing a style grounded in retro teenage comics and pop art with comments on contemporary culture. She produces her illustration work developing traditionally hand drawn line-work with digital colouring, still loving the whole drawing process.
