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.
This collection of prints were created in a single day. I allowed myself to play: with motifs, with style and with my tools. I am ever expanding my toolbox and each of these patterns were created entirely in Procreate, a program very new to me. I tried (and failed sometimes too) to create in this new format while staying true to my vision, all in the spirit of play.
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.
