Jacqueline Janecke is a Wisconsin-based artist who works with food, flowers and photography to create delicate designs and imagery in various media. Jacqueline’s works throughout her portfolio have a consistently bright and peaceful tone.

It’s interesting to see the overlap between the different areas of Jacqueline’s practice. The artist’s floral arrangements and food styling projects show off her photography skills, while her photography portfolio frequently incorporates floral and food subjects. Jacqueline’s photographs are simply composed, focusing on both the central subject and objects in the middle distance. With realistically saturated colors and soft, natural lighting, the photographs take on a homey, rustic feeling.

I’m also quite impressed by Jacqueline’s floral arrangements. The artist is able to create both large, elaborate arrangements, and simple centerpieces utilizing two or three specially selected blooms. As in the work of Japanese florist Azuma Makoto, Jacqueline captures the natural beauty of the plants, placing them next to each other in complementary patterns.
