Featured Artist Bio

    Jacquelyn Ris  As a kid, my family moved around a lot and we lived abroad for many years. For the four years we were in Germany, I saw many breathtaking pieces of art, including those being made in front of crowds by street artists and those embedded in age-old architecture. Though it wasn't these masterpieces that inspired me to start painting, it was my sisters elaborate stick figure drawings. Eventually, I moved from landscapes into realistic portraiture, working on larger and larger scales as I advanced through my art classes in school. Only in the past year have I taken to the idea of working on pieces of art two stories high. More than anything the experience has been a fun ride and a good side project next to my newfound career in cinema.
