Jacqueline is an Australian abstract artist based in Sydney, Australia who studied Visual Arts at the “Instituto Superior del Arte” National University of Paraguay.
Jacqueline’s childhood fascinations lead her on an artistic journey, after finishing high school she moved from Adelaide to Encarnacion, Paraguay where she studied Graphic Design. At the age of 21 she undertook realism painting tutoring lessons for almost three years with a Paraguayan painter by the name of Celicia Hewstone in Asuncion. From 2001-2004 she attended the “Instituto Superior del Arte”, National University of Asuncion where her passion for abstract art started to unfold and develop her artistic career.
While at university she had a number of influential tutors that encouraged the development of her painting style. The spontaneity of abstract expressionism enables her to express a certain situation in a specific point in time. Essential elements such as experiences, emotions and musical influences are the main motivations of her creations. Being able to play with colours, sounds and diving into a state of mind that becomes an overwhelming experience, permits her to translate non-tangible experiences into visual forms.
Jacqueline has exhibited a number of solo and group exhibitions in both Paraguay and Australia.
