Jacqueline Schäfer lives and works in Amsterdam. There she also took her final exams at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 1989. Until that moment, painting was mainly something she did for herself and shared with few others. A means of expression. When she discovered that it was also a means of communication, painting gave her an extra dimension. During her studies, she went in search of a design language that suited her. She found her own style and developed it over the years. Her work is now very recognizable due to the play of clear shapes, bright colors and strongly defined, black contours subdivided into harmonious color areas.

She has opted for the figurative, but not realistic image. She creates a world in which the forms of her figures are recognizable and very individual. The themes of her paintings vary from cheerful, strange fantasy birds, static and subdued still lifes to female nudes. The latter mainly depict her own feelings and moods and in that sense can almost be called self-portraits.

Since 2004, the artist has also been making figurines of, among others, the Strange Birds. For her, this is a new artistic challenge that she hopes to develop even further in the future, in addition to painting. Schäfer's clear and positive love for life in a complex modern society is evident in all her work.
