Jacque’s Story:

As a teenager and young adult, Jacque enjoyed painting, but in college she
decided to take a path different from art and build an educational writing
career. However, in late 2017, thoughts of painting began stealing back into her
quiet, reflective moments. These relentless thoughts nagged her into enrolling
in a painting class that led to an appreciation of how surprising, liberating. and
authentic painting can be. Since then she has combined her three areas of expertise
– art making, instructional design and adult training to produce art classes for adults. See more at: jacsmithfineart.com
