Jacki Geary explores the psychology of introspective moments in her female subjects. She illustrates her focused parallel views of women as beautiful, yet tough; strong, yet vulnerable. Often embracing a vintage aesthetic, Geary’s paintings serve as a collection of quasi-self-portraiture.
Jacki Geary was born in Bergenfield, New Jersey. She studied at Western Connecticut State University and graduated with honors, earning a BFA with a concentration in photography. After a 10 year career as a professional photographer, Geary began painting. Working initially as an abstract painter for 9 years, she eventually fused abstraction with female portraiture. Using acrylics, oils, pastels, charcoal, and watercolors, Geary continues to combine the essence of abstract expressionism with figurative beauty in her most recent work.
Jacki lives and works in San Diego, CA.
