ABOUT JACELYN

Jacelyn rekindled her love for painting by starting to paint seriously since 2009. She is largely self-taught and is currently an active member of the Burnaby Artists Guild.

Jacelyn’s favourite mediums are acrylic, watercolour and mixed medias. She likes to paint things that appeals to her including still life, flowers, animals and landscapes, chasing hue, intensity, texture and composition, resulting in work that engenders an emotion or a visual experience.

 

Through abstract art, she believes that her artistic passion is tangible and that her paintings reflect the tactile reality which is the inspiration for the work.

Jacelyn had attended various art workshops and taken some art courses by many locally known artists. Her work has also been shown at juried artshows such as ‘Positively Petite’ at Place Des Arts in Coquitlam as well the ‘The Anonymous Art Show’ at CityScape in North Vancouver.

Artist's Statement:

“Life is like a piece of canvas. Everyday I am inspired by the beauty I see around me and I want to reproduce what my senses perceive in nature as seen through the veil of the human soul with colors on this canvas.

 

I love colours and I hope each art piece that I produce will allow the viewer to feel the inward significance of the piece that I create from the heart.” - Jacelyn
