After a thorough grounding in sculpture and years of
concentration on oil painting, she discovered the joyful
spontaneity of watercolor and has focused her efforts in
that medium ever since.
Her early recognition and awards came for her
oils and sculpture.
Without the understanding of structure learned
there, mastery of watercolor would still be before her.
Now, as her watercolor technique matures through
practice, experimentation and instruction, her
fascination with the medium and control
of the finished product becomes ever more sure.
She has studied with many of this country’s prominent
watercolorists in workshops and symposia in the states,
as well as abroad, to renew and recharge her commitment
to a demanding medium.
Jacquie has taught watercolor and all media
painting at Sarasota and Manatee Adult & Community
Education for many years.
She shows her work at Art Uptown Gallery, 1367
