Jacqui's artistic journey began with a camera for the sheer joy of being present in the moment to stop and see the essence of the world as I see it and capture those sights. With her camera, she is always on an adventure.
In more recent years, Jacqui's interest expanded to embellishing her photography with an assortment of mediums to bring additional artful details into play. This interest led into two related, yet different additions to her artistic portfolio.
Interest in bringing artful details into her photography, led her first to taking courses in developing skills in digital artistry and mixed media. She brings whimsical, dreamy, inspirational, and motivational elements into her digital art.
The second addition was creating artistic personalized montage keepsakes by combining pictorial elements from different photographs from the same event/life theme along with artistic elements into a single composition. I do this artwork on a case-by-case basis, upon request. People treasure keepsake memoir montages for two reasons. One, because the montage captures a deeper meaning and essence of a wedding, friendship story, life story, sport event, baby’s first days, etc. in a way that no single photograph or photo album of single photographs could capture. Two, the memoir montage is unique piece of artwork to have and enjoy.
