Jacqueline Maldonado is a surface pattern designer and watercolorist.
As a New York native, currently residing in Long Island, she spent most of her adult career in various facets of the fashion industry, all the while nurturing her artistic talent through higher education in visual art and developing a discipline in her artistic practice. In 2012, Jacqueline took a leap of faith to pursue her art as a full-time endeavor. She works in a variety of media and explores many styles and modes of artistic expression but is best known for her work in watercolor.
Her abstracts in watercolor can be understood as emotional landscapes expressed as color and movement, communicating the essence of an experience; music, a memory, loss, joy, uncertainty, defeat, triumph, love and longing. She is drawn to pattern, finding inspiration in the repetition of forms and forces of nature and the world around her.
Her work is featured as home decor products on sites like Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Bloomingdales, Target, Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy’s, Amazon, Joss & Main, One King's Lane, Gilt, Wayfair and many others. She is proud to have partnered with brands such as Popsockets, contributing to a charity campaign for Days For Girls, Int’l.
You can find some of her work featured in book publications by Bowie Style (Print and Pattern: Nature) and Joanna Goss (The Watercolor Ideas Book).
Additionally, her work has appeared on television on HGTV's Flipping The Block, as well as several features in HGTV magazine, InStyle magazine, Good Housekeeping magazine and many popular art, decor and lifestyle bogs.
“I aim to create imaginative work; work that is poetic; work that is soulful and luminous with color.” - Jacqueline
