Living the Dream
Jackie Reeves: Emerging From Motherhood to Artist
by Nicola Burnell
One of six sisters, with three daughters of her own, artist Jackie Reeves playfully explores the transitions of womanhood from one stage of life to another.
Blending inspiration with emotion, she captures women of all ages in moments of ordinary life. What makes this artist so intriguing is her ability to turn these simple moments into timeless works of extraordinary beauty.
Black Socks, for example, evokes the sublime comfort of sinking into a luxurious chair. This colorful collage is created from torn newspaper, charcoal, paint and wallpaper samples.
Both Jackie's parents are architects, which heavily impacted her creative development. "I was influenced by that whole experience of mapping, drawing, doing the types of illustrations that come with drafting." This influence is reentering her most recent artwork.
