Jacqueline Treloar’s work springs from ancient histories and legends, stunning light and colour. Its origins were formed from years living in England, Italy and now Canada. She received her Diploma of Art and Design, BA, at the Central School of Art and Design, London, England (1965-70). In 1970, she received the Leverhulme Travelling Award. This prestigious award was foundational, providing her with nine months of travel to New York, Paris, and Rome, ending up with a position in Enrico Perroni’s textile studio and Sergio Bini’s printing factory in Como, Italy. From 1971 to 1983 she founded the Jacqueline Treloar Design, a textile design studio serving the celebrated Comasco printing industry for alta moda and pret-a-porter fashion houses. In 1989 she received the Ontario Governor’s Award for Excellence. She has participated in exhibitions such as the S S Giovanni e Giacomo exhibit at the Art Gallery of Mississauga (1997).
