Painting is a passion of mine and as such, is ever evolving. My artistic focus has grown and evolved over the 20 or so years that I have been painting consistently (I’ve been an artist all my life but serious about it for about 20 years). A couple of attributes do remain constant – my love for bold color combinations; a strong sense of design; and a change in value (dark to light).
Psychologists have said that color palette preferences are formed early in life and I find it fascinating that I am still inspired by the vivid colors of my childhood home in New Mexico and the Native American (Navajo) influence. You will still find turquoise, red, golden yellow and black (used for symbols on Navajo pottery and weavings) in my paintings today and I love combining these colors together or adding other similarly vibrant colors to the mix.
Ann Art Gallery owner Ann Bailey shares her thoughts: “Jacqueline’s work exhibits energy and excitement. Her ability to show movement and joy in her color combinations is amazing, and stirs the creative side of my soul. It is a true pleasure to work with her and share her passion for life through art.”
