Jacqueline Doyle Allison’s richly layered mixed media artworks are a celebration of her life, memories and dreams and embody the tapestry these elements create when woven together. The artist is strongly influenced by her travels and upbringing in Southwest. The colors and light of the region continue to influence Jacqueline’s paintings and the use of symbols can also be traced to the Native American influence in the art and architecture of her childhood.
Applying many layers, Jacqueline blends traditional artist mediums such as acrylic paint and oil pastel along with nontraditional materials such as fabric and thread to create a complex surface with an intriguing sense of depth.
Jacqueline holds a degree in graphic design with a minor in fine art from Middle Tennessee State University near Nashville. Jacqueline’s studio is located in metro Atlanta where she is also active in regional and national arts organizations. Jacqueline’s work has received nationwide recognition and is continually sought out by collectors.
Along the edge of a waking moment lies a fragment of a dream; a sliver of a memory. Half-forgotten moments and nocturnal wanderings intertwine and tangle. Real or imagined, perhaps the best aspects of both, these after thoughts are revealed on my canvas. Some bold and distinct, others a whisper trace; each is an important element in balancing the whole. My paintings give voice to the often unspoken reminiscences and nighttime reveries. Recalling these impressions give us a glimpse of our past and a glimmer of who we might yet become.
