I am keen on painterly brushstrokes and I love to explore spontaneous mark-making. I started this collection with a loose floral, sketched in watercolor brushstrokes. I kept the same color palette when I moved on to making intuitive marks on the canvas and letting one brushstroke or shape inform the next. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Jacqueline Maldonado collection without some texture and technique juxtaposition.
These prints were all created in a very carefree, non deliberate way. “Nonchalant Coral” is one of my more popular prints and has been featured with Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters on several home decor products and has also been featured in Joanna Goss’s book, “Watercolor Ideas.” I built this collection around that print using some color adjustments to coordinate the eclectic aesthetic.
A collection of watercolor dye patterns, inspired by traditional shibori dye techniques.
My grandmother visits me in butterflies. It’s always a sign of reassurance for me, always at the most opportune times. Purple was her favorite color and I think I often channel her through my work.
Capturing the magic, feeling the connective energies and vibrations of the Universe.
Bold, wild and loose brushstrokes and vivid color converge for the energy of the free spirit.
Feel the tropical boho vibes with this trendy mix of watercolor floral palm leaf prints and traditional stone and dye textures.
