“For me every act of creating art is catharsis. If I can provide my viewer with just a glimpse of that emotional action, I feel I have been successful.” Jacquelyn Berl
Weaving the threads of many forms of creative experience: Jacquelyn L. Berl is the creative force behind AscenderRisesAbove©. While working for her Associates of Fine Arts degree in interior design, she was vice president of the student American Society of Interior Designers; spending ten years doing contract and residential perspective renderings/interior design. She then expanded her horizons to that of a graphic and fine artist. Her self-directed efforts won over 65 national and local awards in the areas of graphic design and marketing. She has done a great deal of community work, including contributions of graphic work for several non-profits. She has held twelve exhibits of her personal work, and each time has successfully blended her powerful vision with a variety of artistic media and form: pointillism, dry pastels, oil pastels, mixed media, watercolor and Scatterlings©: a collection of self-directed enchantment art. Ascender is presently working on an upcoming illustrated novel. Contact Ascender to alert you on the book publication date.
