|A graduate of the University of Virginia with a degree in English
language and literature, Jaqui believes that creation and
expression can have many forms as long as the initial vision is
there. Since 1996, she has painted professionally, showing her
work throughout the United States and Europe, with a permanent
public display at The Homestead Resort* in Hot Springs, Virginia.
To begin her career, Jaqui spent three months painting on the
island of St. Michael, Azores, where she was featured on the
cover of Açores Noticias as a visiting artist. Jaqui continued to
travel and expand her repertoire of subjects and media, living in
south Florida and Newport, Rhode Island. She has returned to
Virginia and established a studio in Virginia Beach.
