Jacqueline Comrie Garrido is a Panamanian fine artist, whose vibrant body of work has been transforming dull indoor and outdoor spaces for communities in Canada and abroad.
As paintings, prints or large scale murals, Jacquie uses colour and movement as primary elements to depict the dynamic, inevitable natural process of all beings: alchemy and transformation.
Dedicated to the belief that art ignites change, and in today's overwhelming state of the world, her mission is not only to strengthen communities through art, but to create positive, inclusive spaces in service of social healing, mental health and wellness.
