Jacqueline (Jackie) P. Weatherly-Cadzow is an award-winning contemporary textile artist and silk painter who combines her love of fabric, photography, and nature to create beautiful artwork. She has a BA degree in studio art from Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina.
A native of Southwest Michigan, Jackie grew up with a love for nature and art, especially drawing, and photography. Fall is her favorite season because nature is full of inspiration with astonishing color and texture. Her love for nature has continued throughout her adult life with her current artistic focus being some of nature’s best handiwork, ocean sea life and coastal flora and fauna.
Jackie has moved numerous times throughout her life, including three different locations during her former career as an analyst with the federal government. She recently resigned from her federal position to pursue her art full-time and now lives in Washington, NC with her photographer husband Derek Cadzow and their two cats. She has exhibited her artwork in numerous areas around the united states. While living in Dayton, Ohio, she was a featured artist on PBS ThinkTV’s The Art Show. Upon returning to Raleigh, NC in 2016, her studio was formerly in The Carter Building, but her studio is now located on the Pamlico River waterfront in Washington, North Carolina, two hours east of Raleigh, just off Hwy 264.
Jackie is a member of various art organizations, including the Surface Design Association, the Threads art group (Raleigh, NC), the Textile Museum in Washington DC, Silk Painters International (SPIN), the Missouri Fiber Artists (MoFA), and Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh. Collectors of her artwork include CWE Medical, St. Louis, MO; Charles Frank Goldsmith, Durham, NC; SAS Institute, Cary, NC; and various private collectors throughout USA, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Jackie’s life experiences are portrayed in her art through her use of bright colors in varying textile mediums, which she hopes provide a feeling of hope and optimism for a positive and adventurous future.
