Jaky was born and educated in Busselton, initially completing her training as a Registered Nurse prior to motherhood, which inspired a new pathway.  Completing a short course in fashion design Jaky pursued modelling and sculpture.  However, her interests then turned to ceramics and she produced works showcasing her innate sense of colour and design.

She is self-taught in many art forms including, but not limited to, mosaic, sculpture, majolica, fused glass, painting and jewellery.

Jaky is constantly experimenting with new techniques within the different modalities.

Finding inspiration in nature to create her artwork Jaky celebrates the beauty and experiences that provide perspective and balance in her life.
