Jacquelyn Maye-Johnson: Mixed Media
I am a self taught artist. I consider myself merely a vessel who is being utilized to create instinctively. The most important goal is to make a profound aesthetic statement. My subjects include women, children and families. I work with vivid colors and symbols, and my pieces have an aesthetic value as well as tell a story through symbolism. I often incorporate fabrics, beads, jewelry and mosaic pieces into my paintings. While I work in a variety of mediums: wood, clothing, silk painting and glass, I continue to explore and add more versatility to my skills, for my art is not confined to any one style or influence.
My Exhibitions Include:
Community Folk Art Center
Everson Museum of Art
Local fine art and craft shows
