               — Jackie Cleveland CEO —

Before I created Jackie Cleveland fine art,

I originally began creating art for the shear joy of it. Over the decades though, I have been encouraged to sell my art by the many compliments I have received from people who viewed and wanted to buy my art to decorate their own homes. But it is difficult to let go of my treasured creations, as it takes many hours of work and many of my paintings are connected to special moments in time that I feel deeply sentimental about.  You see Art is more than just a thing, it is an expression of someone’s heart. 

One day while shopping I couldn’t help noticing all the mass produced home decor picture prints for sale in big box stores that are low priced because they are mass produced.

Eventually, I decided to offer some of my beautiful oil paintings to the public to help decorate & beautify the world with quality archival art. 

But my concern was 

that I could not keep up with supply and demand at an affordable price, because it takes weeks and sometimes months to create and dry a hand painted original piece of art.  As a working mother trying to support my family, the time I have to create original art was quite limited.  

But I still had this burning desire to create the most gorgeous eye popping art for the most discriminating home decorator in the current art market. 

It turns out, the road to success was more difficult than I imagined. Gallery dealers typically take up to 50-60% of a painting sale. The high cost of oil paint, substrates and framing drive the cost of original art way up to buyers. I tried selling at art fairs, but quickly found out how much work it is to pack up all my art on the weekends, drive it to a fair, set it all up & hope for good weather. One day while displaying at an show the wind kicked up and three of my irreplacable oil paintings were damaged when the panel fell.   

I felt so discouraged and feared I would simply have to give up my aspirations. 

But I still had my passion for painting and my dream pushing me forward…

I got the idea to offer my art to you on an online venue, and to make my art more attainable by offering fine art prints of my originals that will never be mass produced.  

Plus, I created smaller original oil paintings & began to create new mixed media art. That expanded into the my collage art greeting cards, as well as hand painted bookmarks. Which make great unique and affordable gifts with that personal touch.  

Through it all, I persevered and released my first products in 2012 and the response has been amazing and rewarding.
