Jackie Brice, a native Floridian, is an award winning professional artist who has been painting since 1967.
She was one of seven Florida artists in 1991 to be invited by the State of Florida to participate in the exhibit, "Moods of Florida" in the main gallery of the State Capitol Building and in 1993, was invited to have a one woman show at the Capitol during the legislative session. In 1997 her work was displayed in a one woman exhibit in the Rotunda of the Richard B. Russell Senate Building in Washington, D.C. As a result, her portfolio has been accepted into the archives of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
She studied for eleven years with her mentor and friend, A. E. "Beanie" Backus. Believing strongly that the greatest teaching tool for a landscape artist is painting outdoors, she has used this practice to capture the essence of Florida. This quote from A. E. Backus states: "Jackie Brice is in my opinion a very talented painter. She has a love of Florida landscape and her mastery of her medium enables her to impart this love." April, 1985.
During its 75th Birthday Celebration, the Town of Jupiter, Florida chose one of Brice's paintings of the Loxahatchee River for the cover of the second printing of "The Loxahatchee Lament". The Martin County Council for the Arts invited Ms. Brice to write the text on the "Backus Colors" for the book, A.E. Backus, The Backus School. It was published in 2000.
In 2002 she was one of five artists in Florida chosen to design a Christmas ornament to hang on the Christmas tree in the Blue Room of the White House.
