Fine artist and designer, Jackee Pugh is a graduate of Columbus College of Art & Design, specializing in abstract art paintings created with alcohol ink. The fluid nature of the ink creates whimsical energy and movement, through the blending and layering of bold colors. The combination of simple, overlapping shapes come together to result in vibrant and playful creations. These paintings celebrate a natural curiosity and create a sense of wonder, leaving each viewer with their own different interpretation of the artwork.
I am a process oriented artist. My work is about layers and connections conveyed through collage, mark making and many layers of paint.
This body of work doesn't seek to recreate my life in photographic detail, rather I aim to capture the overall essence of a life well lived.
My collage and or paintings are flashbacks of happy scenes and memories, these tend to be more colorful than my past work
