Mixed Media allows me the freedom to experiment and recreate images formed in my spirit. I enjoy working with different traditional media, colors, broken glass, discarded car parts, blades of grass- it’s all art to me!
Creating artwork that tells a continuous story is my life’s expression, just like exhaling. Breathing deeply, I live with purpose and encounter the not so everyday challenges in other people’s lives. My art expressions allow me to exhale what I take in- Placing into form the less tangible but more indelible emotions that life can leave behind. Art expression brings pleasure to my heart, my eyes and hopefully to yours too!
My moniker is j. Elise Diaz and my friends call me Jackie. Let's become friends!
Together we can create what you see as a strong expression of who you are or the gift you are trying to share.
I was first encouraged to create by my Grandmother Maude who learned at the hands of American slaves. My first show was in the 5th grade at the Los Angeles Unified School District. I attended two summers at Barnsdall Junior Art Center, Los Angeles.
I am a nurse and community educator by trade. I have worked more than 20 years with children and adults as an Art instructor, emphasizing personal expression. I continue to serve as a speaker, performer and instructor sharing Mixed Media and Language Arts.
Within the past five years sharing my art has become a priority and I have presented my Artistic expressions in venues throughout Southern California, once overseas and twice in other states.
I launched my Mixed Media journey at the North Coast Calvary Chapel Fall Art Show in 2017. I participate in Oceanside Artists’ Alley events, and I have presented work at the Escondido Municipal Art Gallery. I am an active Member of the COAL – Carlsbad Oceanside Art League and the Oceanside Museum of Art Association.
I recently participated in the Oceanside Museum of Art 2021 Plein Air Festival and the 2021 Carlsbad Street Fair. My work is evolving. I want to make it accessible for placing in homes around the world, encouraging deep breathing and expression.
I have seen a lot of things, done a lot of stuff and every day, I choose to breathe deeply, then I express and want to encourage you to do the same.
