These are selected art work galleries by Jacquelyn Berl; covering several decades of work. The best part about creating is allowing one’s self to play around outside usual art styles; blurring boundaries and having a conversation between those styles. Take time to browse these eclectic collections. Jacquelyn’s evolution as an artist has led to a body of work that is ever growing and continues to fascinate viewers.
Scatterlings© is a collection of self-directed enchantment art which combines actual foliage with watercolor and color pencil mediums. Hidden among the actual and rendered foliage are an enchanted assortment of Scatterlings©; mythical animals and fairies.

These one-of-a-kind folk art pieces take up to a year to complete as flowers and leaves are collected, pressed, preserved and finally hidden within a vision that evolves continually.
