About

Enrolled as a senior in the University of Texas at San Antonio, Jacinda is a visual artist pursuing her bachelors in Fine Arts with a concentration in drawing. She has participated in several local art exhibitions in San Antonio and has sold her work to patrons nationwide since 2015. In March 2017, she became a first-time published illustrator of Jasmine F. Sims's children's book titled How the Cheetah Lost His Spots.  

Jacinda's dramatic artistic style is influenced by artists from the Renaissance and Baroque  periods such as Botticelli, Caravaggio, Michelangelo, and Carraci. Styles from Modern and Contemporary artists, including Francisco Goya, Henri Matisse, and Derek Hess, have also contributed to shaping her ever-evolving perspective and appreciation of art. She continually challenges herself to perfect her craft through various mediums, specifically acrylic paints and coloring pencils. The beauty of art over the centuries play an invaluable role in Jacinda's progression of mastering her skills. 

Jacinda's work has been featured at Raw Artists San Antonio at the Aztec Theatre, Artists With A Mission, Southtown Art Gallery,  Una Noche En La Gloria, and Trebla Art Gallery. 

Most importantly, Jacinda is merely a vessel of Jesus Christ, her savior whom compels her to glorify Him in her artwork.  Much of her personal works derive from hymns, scriptures, and life experiences that remind her of the Lord's mercy.  

"The fear of man brings a snare, But he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted."  Proverbs 29:25

My aim is counter-cultural; the world hungrily embraces the profane, but I want to preserve the sacredness of beauty.
