Dancing Glass, Jackie Cort

Schack Art Center is thrilled to select the piece "Dancing Glass" by encaustic artist Jackie Cort for the 2017 Fresh Paint festival poster.

"I am always inspired by the bright sun kissed glass at Fresh Paint, and this piece was inspired by the colors and shapes of Merrilee Moore's glass sculptures that seem to dance in the sun!" - Jackie Cort

About Jackie:

Jackie Cort, known as the "Wax Slayer", has been a painter and maker of all things creative as long as she can remember. She is a self taught artist, who has painted most anything that can be painted on, including people!

Jackie is currently a full time artist and teacher at her Studio in Snohomish, and the NW area, including a variety of classes at the Schack Art Center. She loves teaching encaustic workshops and meeting new creatives. Click here to view a listing of her current classes.

Jackie's primary medium is encaustic. This is the art of painting with molten beeswax and a blowtorch. It gives her great satisfaction to play with the flow of such a natural medium combined with bold and vivid pigments. Her subject matter is spontaneous and in the moment.

This is Jackie's 7th year participating as an artist at Fresh Paint: Festival of Artists at Work.
