For Jaquiel, art comes naturally. In her youth, she developed her love of color in children's painting classes, and her love of nature, by spending summers in the wooded fields in her grandmother's flower garden. Today, she focuses on her love for the natural world, the foundation of her abstract floral series. "I prefer using nature as the starting point. Nature is always the best designer of the abstract," Jaquiel says. Like the elements in a garden, as an artist, Jaquiel continues to grow. She continually experiments and develops new ways of seeing color and form, always changing the perspective of her art, and the world around her.
