Artist Statement:

My paintings reflect the overall essence of landscapes that I either see or imagine. By keeping the composition simple I can focus on balancing colors, values and texture. The beauty and emotion is in the simplicity.

In my technique, I only work with one color at a time. I do not squeeze out multiple paints onto my palette. I mix and work with the one color I need, clean my palette, and mix a new color. This keeps my paints fresh. My finished piece needs to feel balanced to me. Balanced in the colors Iíve used; a balance in the dark, light and medium values; and a balance in the quiet areas versus the more detailed, noisy areas.


Jacquie was born in Taunton, MA in 1966 and began drawing the Peanut characters at a young age.

Although her formal education was in Business, art has always been a big part of her life and in 2000 she focused on learning to paint. She spent years painting on her own and created smaller plein-air landscapes. This process and self-discipline gave her the best education on light and color. She built upon this knowledge and began creating abstract landscape paintings continuing her focus on color.

In 2016 she was invited to become a member of Art in Embassies and has a painting included in the residence of the US Ambassador to Monrovia, Liberia. In 2012 she was selected as one of the Top 50 Emerging Artists by the editorial staff of the New York based magazine, Art Business News. Art Business News is the art industry's most requested magazine and has been the art industryís news leader since 1977. In 2013 she was a featured artist with the retail store West Elm where her work was shown in their catalog and on their website. Also, in 2013 she was invited to display her work in the high-end marketplace, 1stdibs, in the New York Design Center in New York City. She was the first non-New York artist invited to sell her paintings thru this venue.
