Mosaics & Original Woodblock Prints

PJ&pets027Patti Jacquemain grew up on a ranch in Santa Barbara and attended local schools. She received a scholarship to attend Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles and later received her BA and MFA in Fine Art from the University of California at Santa Barbara. Specializing in woodblock prints, Jacquemain has had 31 one-woman shows of her original artwork across the country. Her art has been distributed internationally in the form of greeting cards and calendars by Mission Creek Studios, UNICEF, Pomegranate Press, and the Sierra Club. She is the author of four books illustrated with her art, two of which are children’s books on California wildlife. Jacquemain is also a mosaic artist: among her permanently installed exhibitions are the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital, Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens, First Presbyterian Church, Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, and her own garden, “Creekspirit.”

Jacquemain founded the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature located in Solvang, CA and the Creekspirit Wildlife Foundation in Santa Barbara. Both organizations are devoted to the preservation and conservation of the environment, nature, and wildlife through art.

She is married to David Gledhill, a retired Army Officer, and live in Santa Barbara.
