Jacquelyn Bischak, 1961 | Figurative painter

Born in Ann Arbor Michigan, she received a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Eastern Michigan University.
A large portion of her career has been spent working in advertising as an art director and coordinator, most recently for Leo Burnett.
She began painting the figure professionally in 2007 and showing her work with the Legacy Galleries in September of 2008.
"My work is about moments beyond every day life that have captured my attention. Expressions of contem-plation, undisturbed and hidden, that share our common experiences. Life drawing is where I found my love for the human form. Oil painting is where I discovered my passion for expressing moments of thought and beauty. There is no other medium so well suited for capturing emotion and in-spiration than oil on linen".
