Visual Art Instructor
Jackie comes to us with her Bachelors in Art Education K-12 from Kent State University. She was a stay-at-home mom for 16 years when she started her mural business, Painting by Jackie. She has been a mural artist for 20 years and her work can be found in companies, schools and homes in Westlake, Avon Lake and North Olmsted. Starting in 2007, she was a theatre scenic artist at St. Edward High School for 11 years and their full-time Librarian for 14 years. However, her passion has always been teaching, so she began hosting at-home painting parties through her traveling business, Home is Where the Art is. Jackie considers herself a traveling artist for all ages and brings her creativity, talent, and supplies to homes, offices, and unique settings, such as an alpaca farm and wineries. Jackie has now expanded her repertoire to include painting custom pet portraits. She is looking forward to bringing her teaching and art expertise to a new audience!
