In CASCADE, the colors move with the same rhythm of the wood. And evoke a leaf'ed out tree in mid-summer. The swirling greens and pinks bring a lush green feeling similar to the one we feel sweep us up during the summer season. It features a truly unique piece of natural material that gives you a view of both the deeply textured bark and the stunning maple grain.


This piece has received a lot of attention. The original is currently showing in NYC. In fact, it's shown a few times in NYC galleries, with an interior design curator and will be in an upcoming print magazine launch.

"Hi, I’m Jaclyn. I’m a texturist, painter and mixed media artist living and working in Michigan. I’m heavily influenced by nature and textures. And I bring these two influences together in my work.


I am drawn to the small moments in nature. Discovering them and taking in their natural state of being fuels awe, wonder and ultimately brings me into the present moment. I aim to give others that same feeling through my art.


I can’t go for a hike without stopping to look at small moments like the colorful dance lichen does as it grows up rain-soaked tree bark. Or the contrast between the old tough tree roots and the soft mosses encompassing them. It took me a while to realize not everyone sees these moments— and that was when I discovered my unique artist’s lens.


When I’m working on a piece, my goal is to highlight what about the natural element stopped me originally. I create a reimagined, heightened moment using color, layers and natural textures. So that through my work, I can give you the same permission to pause I feel. And maybe feel some of that same wonder.


And if a piece of mine you bring into your home sparks this, and gets you curious about other moments in nature you could see, then I’ve achieved my mission."
