“Edge of Paradise” by Jacqueline Mack
Size 80w x 36h
Born and raised in Oakdale, Pennsylvania Jacqueline was the youngest of 5 children. By age two she was painting with watercolors. Her mother found that large buckets of water kept her busy for hours when she wanted to paint the back porch. After mastering pencil, pen and ink, calligraphy, and oil paints in high school and winning many awards she was encouraged by her parents to attend the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale graduating with an Associate Degree in Advertising Design.
She then moved to Punta Gorda. After many years in the graphic arts industry creating logos and print media she was led to freelance in every medium. Having no fear of working large she has painted everything from floors to ceilings. Creating custom sandblasted signs and billboards, faux finishing homes, offices and restaurants, even glass and mirror etching. The common thread that runs through all of her work when creating is BOLD. As a multimedia artist three dimensional sculptures have been created in clay. Table bases she welds in steel, copper fold forming transformed many leaves into a driveway gate. Plasma cutting allows her to create wall sculptures and mobiles.
Most recently her Acrylic with Resin pours show off her passion for bold color. Her love of nature and photography gives her the opportunity to capture the world as she sees it with intimate photos of exotic flowers and plants. Her husband Daniel Alvo is a woodturner on weekends. They share a studio on two acres of pure paradise in Alva, Florida with their two golden retrievers. Her work can be seen in many corporate settings, restaurants, residential highrise lobbies, hotels and residential homes.
