A complex painting full of layers of brushstrokes and color. This painting has wide painted edges and is created using high quality oil paints. I consider my paintings a form of organic expressionism, paintings inspired by movement in nature.
Jaclyn probably created one of her favorite pieces in elementary school, of a bird of paradise that won honorable mention at a town day or something, Ever since then she has held a great satisfaction with dripping paint and vividly depicting her relationship of the world through her artwork. Jaclyn graduated from Massachusetts College of Art with a BFA in Painting in 2010 and got her Masters in Teaching at Tufts University in 2013, she loves to work on paper and on canvas and believes that teaching art is a great way to continue to challenge yourself in the studio. Jaclyn's process includes being hyperaware and enchanted at the world around her (much to her friend's annoyance), thinking and imagining deeply at her relationships with beautiful organic forms and her own personal memories (sometimes so much so that she forgets everything else) and constantly painting over what she has painted with paper, paint or spackle when it doesn't look like a bird of paradise.
