My desire is to accomplish not only a true landscape painting but also a feeling.  When a person views a scene on canvas that I’ve seen on location, I want that person to be able to place himself or herself there. It is imperative that the painting has the reflections measured correctly and that the geography of the land whether lowland or high ground has the proper trees and foliage.  An artist must take the time and make the effort to study their subject.  My subject for almost 47 years has been Florida.  When one of my Florida landscape paintings is purchased, I want the purchaser to know that because many hours and many years have been devoted to observing, studying and painting the Florida landscape, their painting is an accurate portrayal of Florida.


Jackie Brice, a native Floridian, is an award winning professional artist who has been painting since 1967.  She studied for 11 years with her mentor and friend, A.E. Backus.  Prior to her work with Backus, she studied for 10 years with Vela Boss of Miami, Florida.  Ms. Brice has been invited to speak in many cities, including Jacksonville, FL, Vero Beach, FL, Denver, CO and Los Angeles, CA.  She has traveled to the Loire Valley in France to study and paint the landscape of the countryside.  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.
