Jacqueline White About

My oils are done primarily on location wherever my travels take me and are an expression of mood and emotion manifested through the beauty of the landscape. A deep desire to partake in a dialogue with nature and a quest to infuse a moment of truth within the canvas is why I paint. This spontaneous process invigorates the work and is imbued with the spirit of nature as it is created in communion with the wind and sunlight itself. 16 comments

Biography

Jacqueline White, a Connecticut artist, enjoys plein air painting wherever she travels and is most drawn to shoreline views.

As a child Jacqueline roamed the adjoining acreage of nursery land owned by her grandparents as well as the nearby wood, either alone or with one or more of her four brothers. When she received a sketch book from her aunt for her birthday, Jacqueline began sketching trees and eventually landscape. Her mother, wanting to nurture this interest even further, enrolled Jacqueline at the age of 12, in private oil painting lessons with Joseph Gionfriddo. A former student of Guy Wiggins and James Goodwin McManus, Gionfriddo instilled in her a love of traditional oil painting. After his death three years later, Jacqueline left with a passion and desire to follow in his footsteps and become a painter.

Her professional memberships include the Glastonbury Art Guild,The Connecticut Academy of the Fine Arts, Connecticut Woman Artists, the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society and Art Associations in Essex, Lyme, Madison and Mystic, CT.
