JACQUELINE W. NUZZO
I was fortunate to have grown up on both coasts of the U.S., with my childhood upbringing taking place in Coronado, CA before spending my adolescent years in Stowe, VT. My path took me to the midwest to study art (and biology) at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. After graduating, I spent a few years immersing myself in the Minneapolis art scene before making the move out to Seattle, WA.
My personal art practice, my primary form of expression, is illustration. The human body is the focus of all of my work and how I depict interconnectedness and physical tension. Every drawing I make depicts a story that can be interpreted through analyzing the nuances in the figures' movement. I often incorporate text and typography to create a more explicit visual narrative.
Currently, I'm the Lead Digital Artist and Content Manager at Grand Image, an art consulting firm. This fall, I will be a Printmedia MFA candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
