Jacque Lynn Keller
Jacque Lynn Keller is an internationally known artist who has been drawing and painting since she was 8 years old. In the farm country of northwest Ohio, she was encouraged by teachers and family to explore her creative nature. Throughout her childhood she was a student at the Toledo Museum of Art’s Youth Studies Program. Jacque began painting professionally in
the early 1980’s after attending the University of Toledo and Arizona State University’s School of Art.
She began as a muralist and specializes in animal eyes, animal portraiture, trompe l’oeil, and commissioned artwork. One of Jacque’s goals is image diversity, ”Each painting has its own lessons for
me. I am an explorer of color and form… you will see everything from portraiture to non-representational
work. I need diversity in painting as in life. I want the viewer to think, to smile, to enjoy…”
Jacque is a signature member of the International Society of Acrylic Painters. “Nature Watch” was exhibited to great reviews in England. It is now in the registry at the Royal Academy of Art, London. In recent years, she has been in numerous international and national exhibitions including those in England, Washington, Louisiana, Florida, Illinois and Arizona including solo and group exhibitions at the Chandler
