Jacquie Leavitt is a self-taught mixed media painter specializing in whimsical art. She grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee and after attending the University of Tennessee she moved to Atlanta, Georgia where she worked in property management. In June 2010, she discovered mixed media painting and began exploring different techniques in order to find her own style. She moved back to Chattanooga in 2011 where she began selling her work at the local markets.
Now, Jacquie has branched out to art festivals in the Southeast, along with showing in local galleries, and teaching at art retreats around the United States. In her work she uses lots of color and texture — often times utilizing several different mediums for the same piece. This can range from collage work, acrylic paints, watercolor, oil pastels, soft pastels, ink, markers, graphite, charcoal, and even paper
that she custom prints. In addition, she loves to include an inspirational quote or two.
Jacquie stays busy painting and raising her six year old daughter, Victoria, who also loves to make art.
