Pointillism/Stippling was first introduced in the 1880’s, in the wake of impressionism, by the French artist Georges Pierre Seurat. A pointillism technique is when dots are grouped together to form an image. The closer the dots are, the darker the tones. When looked at from afar the pieces usually depict a finely detailed picture.

Following years of painting perspective renderings Jacquelyn expanded her portfolio using this stippling technique. Her first pointillism pieces were done while employed as an award winning graphic designer in Wyoming. The focus of this collection are local Indian tribes and a wide range of children’s expressions.

Jacquelyn’s stippling pieces are so intricate that in many cases it is hard to tell if they are done by hand or computer. All are done by hand with Rapidiograph© pens and black india ink.

“I started stippling as an extension of idle doodling and a break from my day job of demanding rapid deadlines. It was a perfect balance in which I could process my own experiences and anxiety. I quickly fell for the meditative qualities; millions of random dots coordinate to produce a powerful statement; elegant, clean and honest.”
