The babies' grandmother commissioned me to add the latest addition to their family. I rendered the trio portrait  in 2004, and the second baby was added to the original in May, 2006 at the same age.

All of the images on these pages are digital photos of the original pencil portraits, optimized for faster downloads from the internet. As such, as well as by the reduction in size, they lose some of the detail of the original portraits . All of these original portraits are either 11x14" or 18x24", and some are composites of  several individual photographs.

Hello. Thanks for stopping by. I would like to tell you a little about myself. First of all, I cannot remember the first time I drew or painted. Both of my parents were very artistic and art has always been a vital part of Jackiemy being. As we humans must eat and sleep, I also MUST draw and express myself through art. I've always -been this way.

As a little girl of about eight years old, my father took me to the Southeastern Fair in Atlanta, GA, and there I saw a portrait artist rendering pencil portraits. I immediately became mesmerized by the process and was fascinated by the skill and discipline required. The pencil artist began very lightly to layer the graphite onto the paper then, stroke by stroke, he progressed to a lovely pencil portrait of the person being drawn. Since that time, to be able to draw pencil portraits has always been my highest aspiration as an artist.

For years I've rendered portraits in pencil, water color, and oils, and for much of the time was basically self-taught. After helping provide college for both my son and daughter, the time came to pursue my own dream of returning to college. In the year 2000, I graduated from GA State University with my Bachelor's degree in Studio art. What a wonderful way it was to usher in the new millennium!

I've been the featured artist at several local art museums and participated in art fairs as well. Throughout the process of learning to draw more skillfully, I realized that I would need to zero in on what is most important for me to express as an artist. I always gravitated back to drawing pencil portraits of people, and pets as well. This is what I've always felt I was supposed to do in life.

Time just ceases to be as I draw; and each portrait is a labor of love that I thoroughly enjoy. Absolutely nothing is quite so rewarding to me as stretching the 3-dimensional image of a beloved human being or pet onto the 2-dimensional surface of a high quality sheet of paper. One of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences of my life is to be able to give joy to others by creating the likeness of a loved one or beloved pet. The ability to draw pencil portraits is God's very special gift to me.
