“My goal, always, is to paint the dance of color,” Jacque said.

Jacque’s subject matter is diverse: landscape, portrait, still life. She prefers to paint familiar scenes of the local landscape.Paintings by Jacque Carroll at Burien Community Center in Sept. 1

Raised in Spokane, Jacque earned her art degree from Spokane Falls Community College, followed later by study with Nina Mikhailenko, a Russian Impressionist painter influenced by Sergei Bongart and Ron Lucas. Jacque’s five years of private lessons with Nina imbued her paintings with a strong sense of color.

Jacque organized and chaired the 2009 Tukwila Paint Out, a plein-air event designed to bring regional artists to this area to capture scenes of Tukwila.

Jacque was a Systems Analyst at Boeing for 30 years. Before her Boeing career, she worked as an artist for advertising agencies. Her freelance activity includes a two-year fashion illustration account.

Jacque’s paintings have won awards at the Tukwila Art Show and been displayed in Burien, Renton, Maple Valley and Olympia. She is a member of the Artists United Club, a local artists group.
