     Life Is A Beach

Sand Between My ToesArtist Jacqueline France will be exhibiting her original oil paintings of people at York Harbor beach.  The fun in the sun, color and atmosphere of our beach and ocean inspired her to capture everything from people just hanging out on beach chairs to kids challenging the surf.           Sand Between My Toes

Jacqueline and her husband are from Chicago but spend much of the summer in York where they own a home. Much of their time is spent sketching and painting in the area and the beach became a natural for her subjects. Jacque’s sketches and photographs of beach activity later are developed into full size oil paintings completed in her studio. Jacqueline is a popular painting teacher and art association/guild member and conducts regular oil painting classes, critiques, demonstrations and painting workshops in the Chicago area and throughout the midwest. 

She is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her paintings hang in private and corporate collections throughout the country.
