About Jacquie

Jacqueline Clark is a signature member of the National Watercolor, Florida Watercolor, Pennsylvania Watercolor and the  Florida Suncoast Watercolor Societies and a Petticoat Painter, one of the oldest continuly exhibiting women’s groups in the States.  She is an artist always in pursuit of the essence.  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 Main St. Sarasota, FL.
