About this pro

I'm a traditional art teacher. I teach the fundamentals and foundations of art and skills needed for the student to apply them in his or her compositions. 



Jackie Etta creates vibrant and inspiring paintings using bold brush strokes, a bright color pallette,  and a unique style. Raised near the Florida coast, Jackie's passion for capturing nature's beauty along with the human figure is evident in her compositions.  She currently lives in NC and is inspired by the vast array of gorgeous mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and a very desirable climate. 


Jackie Etta's passion for art began at a very young age and she feels Blessed to have met many talented people who influenced her along the way. For example, world renown Spanish painter Pablo Sansengundo Castinada who taught her the techniques of the Renaissance Masters. Jackie became friends with Pablo's family and studied under him in Florida for several years until Pablo Sansengundo Castinada moved back to his home in Spain. Jackie Etta continued her passion for art and received a BFA at Stetson University in DeLand Florida where she studied under contemporary artist, Gary Balding.


Jackie Etta is a full time art teacher for NC Public schools. She also leads a Plein Air Painting group NCPAP.ORG:  Triangle Plein Air Painters
