Born in small town Saskatchewan, Jacqueline has worked and lived in the prairie provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Returning to Saskatchewan in the late 90’s, she now lives in Saskatoon.
Jacqueline has worked diligently over the past 20 years developing her skills as an artist through self-teaching, university curriculums and various professional artist workshops. Jacqueline works out of her home-based studio, her always faithful companion and art critic, her dog, by her side for many years. As part of her creative process and a commitment to herself to remain focused she makes it a daily habit to do something art related.
Jacqueline is a disciplined painter, prolific, versatile and experimental with a preference for acrylics on canvas. She paints in series and collections to keep her passion and ambition fresh.
Jacqueline’s distinctive style – strong confident brush strokes remaining loose, fluid and spontaneous, brings varied subjects to life with vibrant colors. Her muse might take her through a rural countryside, the city, into the garden or up in the clouds.
Whether impressionistic, expressive or abstract, a confident brush stroke, the swipe of a crayon or intricate pencil helps build personality into every one of her works whether it is a still life, or a landscape. These are the tools she creates with to tell the story.
Her favorite quote from a patron “Everybody sings in a different Color”.
