This is an experimental piece from my Waterfall series, I used a variety of non conventional materials including spackle and varnish to make an exciting textural piece. I am inspired by natural places and memories to create organic expressionistic paintings full of energy and life.
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.
