Jacqueline is relatively new member of the Passionate Painters. Primarily a self-taught artist, she is known affectionately by her family as the Pyjama Painter since she is often drawn into her home studio even before getting dressed for the day. She credits her youngest of 3 sons, for her inspiration and desire to paint, which came after watching him create a large mural in downtown Calgary.
Partnering with wildlife photographers in recent months has afforded her the challenge of capturing on canvas, the emotion, spirit and soul of her subjects through her interpretation of these images.
Jacqueline says, "Creativity has been with me since I was a young person. Whether I was sewing, gardening, or cooking ... I cannot remember a time when I wasn’t creating. I have been painting for nearly seven years now, and have truly found my “Joie de Vivre”!
