js2ARTIST STATEMENT

Jacquelyn Sloane Siklos studied at the University of Toronto, receiving a B.A. in fine art and art history, and graduated in Graphic Design and Illustration from the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) (1995-1993).

Jacquelyn worked as a graphic designer for a number of years at a major Toronto design firm, Gottschalk + Ash (G+A). After leaving G+A, in 2000, she continued to work as a freelance graphic designer. She began on a full-time professional art practice in 2006. Most of her work explores the accidental and imperfect, and all of her
series share an intense love of colour. She uses a variety of different cameras and techniques to create her images, including toy cameras – Lomo, Holga – and a digital SLR.
