Jackie Boudreau Kinsey was born and raised in Springfield, MA and attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. While earning her BFA in Painting, Jackie studied under Professors Jeanette Cole and Richard Yarde. She resides in the hills of Western Massachusetts.

Jackie's paintings display an internal response to the landscape. The study of light on the land and the poetry that is revealed both inform and inspire her work. Jackie does most of her preliminary drawing and painting outside and then returns to the studio, where she uncovers nature's inherent abstractions.
