Jackie Graham is a watercolor artist based in San Francisco.
While her style tends toward realism, she is most interested in creating pieces that are fun, quippy, and – most importantly – bring joy to their viewers.
Jackie grew up in the Bay Area and graduated with a B.A. in Art History from UCLA in 2010.

Jackie’s passion for both art and food started at an early age. Her father loves to tell anyone who will listen that as a two-year-old she would sit on the floor drawing perfect circles. Mom’s prowess in the kitchen (and famous blackberry pie) led to an appreciation for all things culinary and a life-long sweet tooth.
After dabbling in everything from oil painting to print making, Jackie found her medium soul mate as a senior in high school: watercolor. The careful planning, patience, and ability to deal with the not-so-occasional element of surprise that watercolor painting requires, continues to challenge and inspire her to this day.
College led Jackie to Los Angeles where she studied Art History, graduating with highest honors from UCLA. She maintained a sense of creativity after school by pursuing careers in advertising at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and marketing at both small startups and large corporations, including Sephora.
But “applicably creative” wasn’t enough, and in 2014, she left her desk job to truly create.
Jackie currently works and resides in beautiful San Francisco, CA.
