Jackie Haugen  is a prolific watercolor artist who challenges herself to paint nearly every day.A resident of Highland Village, TX,  Jackie is an artist who experiments in a lot of different media, but loves to look at works on paper, and create with paper. Collage is one of her favorite means to give the painting life and another layer of texture . She truly enjoys commissions and working with people to help tell their story of their favorite places and memories.  Her art is frequently described as energetic and imaginative. When not in the studio she looks for interesting places to stop and sketch and has filled more than 30 sketchbooks . These sketches inform her paintings and bring pleasant memories of travels. She has taught 3 sketch booking seminars and enjoys going on Plein Air trips with the Southwest Watercolor Society . History is also important to her. One of her memories from an unusual hometown novelty located on the Old Lincoln Highway in PA. started as a sketchbook page and later became a full size painting entitled POT BAR . It was juried into the Irving art Guild Member show.and in the 2006 the same painting was chosen for the March- April  issue of Palette Magazine.

She has won many awards through the years, including 2 Peoples choice award, and Best of Show in a collaborative piece that is part of a permanent installation at the MCL Grande Theater in Lewisville, TX.  Her paintings can be viewed at Indigo Art and framing in Flower Mound. .Jackie is a member of the Visual Art Society of Texas Denton TX, the Visual Art league of Lewisville, TX, Southwest Watercolor Society Dallas., TX. , CrossTimbers Artist Guild of Flower Mound ,and Urban Sketchers of DFW. Every aspect of painting ,including working with her husband to frame her pieces, is interesting to her. Reading about paintings, helping with the Denton VAST art critique and organizing workshops for the Visual Art League of Lewisville and all the artist friends she has made over the years makes life enjoyable and meaningful.
