Jackie Weatherly-Cadzow is an artist that loves bright, bold, color. You can tell by looking at her award-winning silk paintings, photography, acrylic paintings, and textile art that she is captivated by color. Painting on silk is Jackie’s primary artistic medium, but she enjoys creating in a variety of media including non-traditional quilting, linocut printmaking, and digital design.
Jackie received her BA in Studio Art, from Meredith College, in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2003. Since then, she’s been integrating her appreciation of nature with bold color, creating captivatingly beautiful artwork.
As a child, her inspiration came from her grandmother’s oil paintings and her grandfather’s photography. Now her inspiration comes from details found in nature, especially the colors of fall foliage. Her passion is Mother Nature’s best handiwork — ocean sea life and coastal flora and fauna.
Jackie’s unique and colorful art is derived from her surreal life experiences; expressing hope for a positive and adventurous destiny.
