The Franklin Lakes Library is excited to have local artist, Jacqueline Collier, exhibiting during the month of April in the library gallery.
Born in New York City, Jacqueline Collier has been a resident of Teaneck for more than 25 years. Her interest in art started early in her childhood. She always enjoyed painting, and she has always had a love of nature and a desire to express the feelings that it evokes through her art. Jacqueline is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, where her goal was fashion-illustration. However, she took a different turn towards early childhood education. She received her bachelor's degree from Herbert H. Lehman College, and her master's degree from the College of New Rochelle in Special Education.
After teaching for more than 30 years, Jacqueline now devotes her time to her passion for painting with a focus on watercolor. She is a member of the Pascack Art Association, The Salute to Women in the Arts, The Pen and Brush Society in NYC, and is an Associate Member of the NJ Watercolor Society. Jacqueline has recently exhibited throughout the Bergen County and New York City areas.
The Franklin Lakes Public Library is located at 470 DeKorte Drive in Franklin Lakes. For further questions please contact Samantha McCoy at 201-891-2224.
