About the artist:

Seaweed green, ocean blue and sunset blush, pints of paint gleaming like jewels in a treasure box, paint brushes and a blank canvas are the artists’ playground. Jackie Handly, a mixed media artist, is filled with delight when surrounded by art supplies and revels in making art to share that joy with others.

Jackie’s art won a blue ribbon at the 2015 San Diego County Fair student show. Another of her pieces received first prize in the 2015 San Diego County Library Contest, a library system serving 4,526 square miles. The library judges selected her art to be printed on bookmarks and offered to readers at all thirty-three libraries in the system.

The beautiful light in Coronado inspires Jackie and she hopes to share some of the eternal sunshine and bring a smile to people’s faces with her work.
