Patron: Marcus Theatres

Born and raised in Lincoln, NE, Jewel studied art at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and obtained a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree.  Always fond of travel and the arts of different cultures she has tried many styles of art through several mediums.  From Manuscripts with egg tempera and black gall ink on vellum to Australian Aboriginal dot art in acrylic on chairs to sewing clothing made from men’s neck ties, her eclectic interests keep her moving on to new ideas and new things.  She enjoys many crafts, cake decorating, sewing, screen printing, molding with clay and works in many 2D mediums such as watercolor, guache, charcoal, pencil, ink, oil and acrylic.  She has a great love for people so you will find them in much of her work.  However, design elements are becoming more prevalent as she has recently added Czech and Native American designs to the top of her interests list.  Don’t be surprised on what you see her trying next.

Title:  As Night turns into Day-I’ve recently discovered the joy of dot art.  I love the bright colors, detail and patterns.  I find that it is loved by most from adults to children.  Although tribes in Australia and Africa have been doing this style of art for hundreds of years it never seems to get dull.  I’ve been dabbing for over a year and everyone seems to enjoy the designs.  As for the subject, I have always been fascinated by the movement from night to day and vice versa.  The movement of the moon and sun have entranced the world for thousands of years and have sparked everything from calendars for the solstice to worship as gods.  As we move into my favorite season, fall, the light of sun grows shorter in our sky and as the darkness grows we know that winter approaches.  It is the turn of the great wheel of life.
