Originally from Rochester, New York, Jacqueline Friel studied at the Rochester Institute of Technology and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration, and a Masters in Art Education. Watercolor portraits gave way to lenses and photography along the way, and she now lives and works in the South Carolina Lowcountry. Her husband, Doug, and their two dogs accompany her as she explores the gnarled oaks and maritime forest that is so distinctive to this very special part of the country.
