Originally from Michigan, Jackie pursued her artistic talents at the University of Michigan, where she received a bachelor's degree in Scientific Illustration and a Master's degree in Medical and Biological Illustration.

Her work can be seen in the world renowned reference set, Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia, by Gale Publishing. She also has experience in graphic design and web graphics.


Jacqueline's career is not only driven by her love for art, but more so by her intrigue with nature and science.

Her education included courses in Biology, Gross Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, and Embryology, to name a few.

Outside of her science illustration career, Jacqueline is also an adjunct professor at St. Clair County Community College, as well as Lambton College.  She instructs courses in Digital Illustration, Animation, Photoshop and Illustrator, Foundation Drawing and Art Appreciation.
