Jacqueline Meredith has had a passion for painting all of her life.
After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, she moved to British Columbia and pursued other avenues of life while taking further painting classes and workshops. In 1994 she moved to Salt Spring Island to become a full-time artist. She took workshops given by local artists, particularly Jack Avison, and off-island artists such as Kiff Holland and Harry Heine. These watercolour artists inspired her to concentrate on this medium.
For her latest works she uses up to 20 washes of transparent watercolour to create luminous and radiant semi-abstract island scenes that capture the serenity and tranquility of the peaceful lifestyle we all know and love. The intensity of the washes layer up with an end result of an almost jewel-like finish. Each work is custom framed using the highest quality framing and glazing options available.
Jacqueline's goal as an artist is to capture the peace and harmony of her surroundings, the moodiness of the seas, mountains and skies, and the unique light, mist and vegetation of the Pacific Northwest. Her works not only represent the visual elements of island life, but also reflect the true simple beauty that surrounds us in this very idyllic part of the world.
