As an artist there are times when I feel like I have no idea what I am doing and it can be frustrating and heart breaking. But because I have been painting for a long time, I know it is all part of the creative process. I was having these uncertain feelings as I was trying to pull this painting together - hence the title "A Familiar Unknown".
Although Jacquie's formal education was in Business, art has always been a big part of her life and in 2000 she focused on learning to paint. She spent years painting on her own and created smaller plein-air landscapes. This process and self-discipline gave her the best education on light and color. She built upon this knowledge and began creating abstract landscape paintings continuing her focus on color. Her paintings are collected in US, Canada and Europe and she has had prints available in Pottery Barn, Neiman Marcus and TJMaxx. In 2016 she was invited to become a member of Art in Embassies and has a painting included in an exhibit at the residence of the US Ambassador to Monrovia, Liberia.
