about Jackie

Jackie Mathey is a portrait and fine art photographer. Trained in the fine arts at Ringling College of Art and Design she is a self taught photographer, specializing in using oils paints on black and white prints.

In addition to private portraiture, Jackie has exhibited her work, been published in a variety of books and magazines, as well as a bit of advertising and illustration. She received an Addy Award for her work in the "Children's Fantasy Garden" a brochure for the Albuquerque Biological Park.

Her most joyous endeavor is her work with the "Heart Gallery" finding adoptive homes for  older children in the foster care system through her portraits.

For the past 15 years Jackie has enjoyed teaching privately and in groups including a week long workshop at the Santa Fe Workshops.

Her passion for photography has been inspired through her rediscovery of the pinhole, seemingly a window for nature to enter the photographic process.  It is this passion that she wishes to share through "camp obscura" a week long workshop designed to explore the art of pinhole photography and the camera obscura.
