Jackey's Art




I have been creating art professionally since 1982 beginning with high end hand painted custom silk clothing  and ran my own hand painted clothing business until 1990. I then transitioned into Faux Finishes for the next 20 years where I worked with clients in their homes creating comfortable environments with beautiful custom wall treatments and colors.
 
In 2009, I began exploring my own art using ideas and technique from my career.  My interest in the environment, in giving new life to cast offs and uncovering the layers of meaning through symbolism, have all culminated in an Art Form where  I take old cabinets or drawer faces, window frames, or doors and  cut them into panels.  Color and oil stains are then applied to add interest to the character of the wood.   I build a raised tinted plaster finish to the panel center and the plaster becomes the painting surface, while the wood door or window becomes the frame around it. 
 Most of my materials come from people who forgot they had these doors and things laying around and rotting away.  They are happy to clear a space and happy that the piece will be useful again.  I feel that I’m re-purposing, preserving a bit of history and creating something new, with each piece becoming a unique one of a kind treasure.

My designs are inspired by personal experience, symbolism and spirituality.  This work is a journey during which universal connections are discovered.  Where, although our stories are different, we can relate through art. 

My current and up dated work is available for purchase on my Etsy store.  Please visit.
