ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Working with color, texture and various mediums, Northern California artist Judy "JJ" Jacobs creates powerful abstract expressions that provide the viewer with visual delight.  From her bold and vibrant collection of non-objective creations to her thought-provoking and subtle series of abstract houses and still life vessels, she creates affordable, artistic designs that are versatile and visually pleasing for the home, business and hospitality environment. 

ARTIST STATEMENT

My paintings usually begin with an idea of what I would like the finished piece to look like and as I work, my intuitive side kicks in and takes me in another direction altogether.

Emotions become colors and life experiences are expressed through various textures. Bold brush strokes and a variety of mediums blend together to weave a story that needs to be told.
