Note From the Artist:
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my work. I am grateful for you.
I hope you find inspiration and perspective while exploring my pieces. I create images in hopes of sparking dialogue, mirroring our society and holding an honest place for my concepts. Art has been the womb for my dreams and I paint because there is no other way out.

With all my love,
Jacqui M.
