Jackie was always creative growing up, but as she approached the end of her high school education, she felt the societal pressure to get a ‘real job’. For five years, Jackie studied occupational therapy before rediscovering her love of painting in the year 2019. In 2021, Jackie decided to take the plunge, dedicating herself to work on her art full-time. Acrylic is Jackie’s primary medium, but she also loves working with soft pastels, oil pastels and fine liner.
Jackie’s pieces are abstract and are intuitively composed, inspired by her journey back into art, the happenings of the world around her, and all the creative aspects that fill her life.
