Artist, educator and volunteer are Jackie’s most frequently worn hats, each containing a multitude of subsets or diﬀerent “looks”. She is an artist alumni of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Department of Art and Art History with a BFA and MFA in sculpture. Movement and whimsey are hallmarks of her work in metal, clay, glass, ﬁber and plaster. Jackie’s works are included in collections both public and private, by commission and freelance oﬀerings.
Currently, Jackie is teaching Introduction to Three Dimensional Design at Windward Community College and Bronze Casting from her small private foundry in Kaneohe. Past teaching credits include classes at the University of Hawaii Outreach College, Chaminade University, Kapiolani Community College, The Honolulu Museum of Art( Academy), The State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Artist in the Schools, The Boys and Girls Club of Honolulu and Temple Emanu-El School of Jewish Studies.
It seems Jackie is drawn to non proﬁt organizations both professionally and as a volunteer. She is serving another two years as President of the Temple Emanu-El Board of Trustees, as an at-large member of Hawaii Craftsmen and Glass Fusion Collective Boards as well as being a newly minted member of the Jewish Community Services Board. She is also a Girl Scout Troop Leader for girls in grades K- 5 which meet at Palolo Elementary School.
