Read About Me: Jackie Jacobson

I LOVE TO DRAW. That’s it plain and simple. Of all of my skills, I’m really pleased with my progress at drawing faces. And why? I never could draw. All through my early schooling days, my father did all of my drawings for reports. And then I began to “paint by number.” I loved that, until asked  by an artist friend, ” Why aren’t you just painting your own paintings?” Answer…”I CAN’T DRAW” I was 28 years old, when she grabbed my hand and made me enroll in a 3 year art  course. I studied anatomy, life figure drawing, portrait painting and the rest of the European Academy curriculum. End of story…I now can draw, and I really love drawing faces. So here you have them. I share my LOVE of portrait and figure drawing with you!
