"My art is a mix of subject matters—things that resonate with me on an emotional level."
As a child, Jacqueline would spend hours drawing and coloring. As she grew older and matured her art materials expanded. At an early age she enrolled in art school, fell in love, married, and started a family. Then her studies took a pause. Her children now have grown, and she has bounced back on the art path.
She has spent her time traveling with family and friends to different historical sites such as different artist’s studios, Frida Kahlo’s bed, Claude Monet’s garden, remote corner of the world where the ocean and desert meet; yet somehow always finding herself with a piece of paper drawing or painting a quick sketch. Drawing has always been a part of her.
Her travels have opened her mind and heart influencing her work. She is an expressionist painter. When painting her heart takes over her hand controlling brush marks, gravitating to the red and violet hues; they have a way of calming her soul and exciting it. Jacqueline’s art is a mix of subject matters; all painted with a bit of her essence.
Jacqueline has exhibited in galleries in Mexico and Laguna Beach. Her work can be found in collections internationally. She is currently completing her BFA in drawing and painting at Laguna College of Art and Design.
I am an expressionist painter. When painting, my heart takes over my hand controlling, my brush marks, and the use of color to portray mood. I gravitate towards the red and violet hues; they have a way of calming my soul and exciting it. My art is a mix of subject matters—things that resonate with me on an emotional level. It brings me satisfaction when the viewers senses the emotions left behind.
