Growing up with a military family, traveling has been part of Jacqueline's life since she was born in Tokyo. Her mother, born in Paris, France, married her dad, an American G.I., at the end of World War II. Their young family of four traveled and lived around the world, giving her an international upbringing and a love for travel.
Her life journey gives Jacqueline a never-ending source of inspiration to represent gems of the world in her color-filled paintings. Her watercolor journal has become a visual diary and constant companion everywhere she travels. Using a warm and playful color palette, Jacqueline enjoys capturing a moment in time by painting the dappled sunlight on a field of lavender, or the brilliance of a tropical beach. She introduces color in the shadows and sun-drenched areas, which creates a luminous glow in her paintings. Primarily a watercolor artist, she uses her watercolor journal as a springboard for exploring creative ways to incorporate mixed media into her art and providing the bases for her larger creations.
Jacqueline is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon, the Northwest Watercolor Society and the High Desert Art League. She teaches watercolor workshops at her Tumalo Studio, Central Oregon Art Association, the CREATE retreats in Chicago and Irvine, and the Art & Soul Retreats in Portland, Oregon. She has conducted watercolor workshops in Provence, France and is excited to join Adventures in Italy, September 2014. She has several articles published in the mixed-media magazine, Cloth-Paper-Scissors about creating art while on your journey. Her self-published book, Watercolor Journeys is a helpful guide for beginning to advanced watercolor enthusiasts and her workshop DVD with Interweave has just been released: Art Journals On-The-Go: How to pack, prep, paint, and more.
Jacqueline says, “I am a traveler and an artist and I love mixing the two!”
