“My name is Jacquie Beattie and it is cool to now call myself an “Artist.”
You see, when I was young, I had almost begged my father to allow me to attend the Vancouver School of Art, now the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. But he insisted on an academic education – He was thinking I would never find employment after graduation – plus, hippies and such were known to go to art school :):)
So here I am, almost a lifetime later, living in the same city as my one and only daughter and fellow artist, Oshan Ford. I could never in my life ever predicted this!
Now, as a happy hippie artist, I sketch, paint with acrylics, and love collage and mixed media art. I believe you can collage just about anything and make it a masterpiece. Some of my collage art projects include: electric switch plates, a bookcase, chairs, plant pots, abstract sculptures, picture frames, trinket boxes, decorative bowls, canvases, and a manikin.
Much of my work is very detailed. I want and love people to be drawn into the Magic of the Mystery of Art.”
