Jacklyn (Jackie) Laflamme, an artist and an entrepreneur, originally from Montreal, Canada, she graduated with degrees in Creative Arts and Interior Design, both with honors. She began a professional career leveraging her design sensibilities as a Visual Display Artist; an early training ground she shares with such artists as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Willem DeKooning. She joined Image Display, Canada’s leading Visual Display Company, and attributes her infallible sense of line, balance, structure, form and harmony to her five years with this company. While working for Image Display, Laflamme simultaneously apprenticed herself to a Canadian paint maker. Here she gained a comprehensive, hands-on education for the elemental materials of her craft; How the grinding of pigments can affect the brilliance of a color, to the mixing of the binders, solvents and additives that create the body of the paint and how different manufacturing techniques affect the intensity of hues. This gave her the foundation to intelligently experiment with different color mediums that manifests itself today in the riotous color that drenches her canvases. In 2000, she decided to live her dream and work as an artist. She was emboldened in this decision by the success of her first solo show; she committed herself to making art full-time. She has sold hundreds of paintings through galleries and direct commissions. She is an award-winning artist and illustrator, a grant recipient and is now emerging in the public art scene with her vibrant colorful murals and sculptures.
