Jacqueline Sieganthaler was born in Bern, Switzerland. Creativity has always been an essential part of her life as far back as she remembers. Drawing was a particular favourite but also creating 3D objects with any materials or techniques that were available and inspired ‘hands-on’ opportunities.
After travelling extensively around Europe and further afield, New Zealand has now been her home for the last 32 years.
In 2011 she completed an undergraduate degree with the Learning Connexion, Wellington, progressing from there to study a Graduate Tertiary Teaching Learning program through Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin, graduating in 2013. Currently she is in her last year of studying a Master of Design by Project with Unitec, Auckland.
