Galerie Old Chelsea is pleased to present the paintings of Jacqueline Ratto Allard, a painter in both oils and acrylics. A native of Nova Scotia, Ratto Allard was drawn towards art at a formative age and throughout high school arts programs. During her teaching career, she moved across Canada and Europe while continuing to develop her unique art style. She studied under various mentors in Nova Scotia, Toronto, and Naples Italy. She also studied at Mount Allison University on a Fine Arts Scholarship and attended the Academy of Design and Decorative Arts in Brussels, Belgium studying in a variety of media under David Vandenriessche.

Jacqueline has matured as an artist, portraying imagery of what she observed in her travels, exploring different styles and subjects in her work, She explores a variety of subjects in still life, landscape, old buildings, and intricate designs. Her work reflects bold lines with vibrant colours, portraying a strong yet sensitive reality which shows graceful forms and slightly altered patterns. Her designs have been deemed “powerful with a strong feeling of surface patterns”, and an appealing sense of spontaneity.
