About Jackie Lakely

I am a painter and collage/mixed media artist and have spent most of my life moving around and have never put roots down in any one place for long.

This has encouraged me to fill sketchbooks and notebooks with observations of every place I go — sketches and notes of the landscape, sky, colors, shapes, smells, music, mood, people, and whatever else captures my attention. These books are the inspiration for the artwork I create.

My intent is to create worlds that I want to visit and most often they are not any specific place. They are familiar but unknown, joyful and mysterious.
