Jacqueline Baerwald is a painter, photographer, graphic designer, and mixed media sculptor. She currently lives in the southwest Michigan. Her main objective in creating art is to make people think. Most of her work is interested with the human condition and the resulting divine interaction. She takes a lot of inspiration from reading psychological, religious, and health-related books, listening to thought-provoking lectures and songs with intriguing lyrics, conversing in deeper intellectual discussions, and observing human habits and history. Since childhood she’s drawn, sewn and crafted. During high school she took an art class that exposed her to painting and pottery, but it wasn’t until later in college that she more seriously considered art as a profession. After graduating high school and taking three years off to travel and work with several youth organizations through her church, she started attending Delta College in mid-Michigan. There she solidified her desire to pursue art full time. Jacqueline graduated in 2011 with an Associate in Fine Arts and an Associate in Liberal Arts, graciously being honored with the Graduating Art Student of the Year Award. Since then she has continued creating her own studio work, entering shows, painting commissions, giving private art lessons, and encouraging young and old to pursue and explore their own creativity.
