A Grand Rapids native, Jacqueline returned after studying at the American College of Art & Design in London, England, the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and the Accademia di Belle Arti in Perugia, Italy. She finished her B.F.A. at Kendall College of Art and Design, majoring in sculpture. Today, Jacqueline's paintings are held in numerous private collections internationally. Jacqueline believes that art should speak in a very personal way to the beholder. "To have someone look at your painting and be moved is extremely powerful," she says. "When you capture a piece of the soul through your work, there is no greater honor."
