Sunnyshore Studio is thrilled to announce that Jacqueline Dorsey will be serving as the Coordinator of the Discover Beautiful Camano Project. Jacqueline is highly organized and she is going to do an amazing job!
Sunnyshore Studio: What’s it been like to grow up in a family of artists?
Jacqueline: I’ve been submerged in the world of art since I can remember. And it’s been eye-opening seeing how much time, technique and networking goes into art and art shows. It’s been really fun to help at art shows hosting people, during the register, and other meeting people from all walks of life.
And I’ve been fortunate to paint and sell, and be commissioned to paint, art of my own.
Sunnyshore Studio: What kind of art do you do?
Jacqueline: Watercolor landscapes for the most part. I like to draw and dabble in different art forms. I’ll be taking Watercolor 101 at Bellevue Community College this fall as part of the Running Start program.
Sunnyshore Studio: You’re helping your Dad as the Coordinator of the Discover Beautiful Camano Project. Tell us more about that project and what makes you good as a Coordinator?
It is all about discovering the beauty of Camano Island through art and telling people’s stories and histories. The culmination of this two-year project will be in July 2020 showcasing the art of Camano artists in an art show at Sunnyshore Studio. The stories of people and their places will be told in the Discover Beautiful Camano coffee table book as well as a documentary video.
I’m a detail-oriented person and an avid organizer and planner. I wanted to challenge myself by taking on an ambitious, two-year project.
Sunnyshore Studio: What are you most excited about in coordinating the Discover Beautiful Camano Project?
Jacqueline: I really enjoy getting the little details of a list checked off that move us forward in the project. Seeing everything slowly come together, piece by piece, and how every little thing that we do makes the project better. I’m looking forward to learning more about my family’s roots on Camano and the history of the people there.
