Jacqueline Oliver received her BFA in Illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Soon after graduation she travelled around the country painting murals, and then worked as a full-time display artist for Anthropologie, building sculptures and large-scale installations for stores in Florida and Asheville. These days she primarily works as a two-dimensional artist, creating imaginative art inspired by the natural world and working in a variety of mediums and sizes, from small sumi ink paintings to expansive murals. Though varied, her diverse body of work shares a common thread of appreciation for linework and narrative. Recently she has begun utilizing papercutting to explore line and composition through the use of negative space. Jacqueline's art has an illustrative quality and often contains small hidden details that tell a story. She works from her home studio in Asheville, North Carolina.
