Jacalyn was born in Chester County, PA. Her early art training was rooted in the stories and beauty of the Brandywine Valley. Jacalyn’s paintings - particularly plein air landscapes, are widely recognized and collected for their historical and visual appeal.  “Her rich palette and sensitive depictions of places are a winning combination that will reward lingering to appreciate the details" (Chamblis, Chester Co Press).

The Council is the advisory body to the Delaware Division of the Arts and advises on matters of arts policy, funding and other issues relevant to the arts. She holds a BS, MEd and EdD and received the Presidential Award - Wilmington University's most prestigious award given to one student from among all disciplines who best represents and exhibits outstanding leadership, respect for others, and the University's mission and values. She served eight years on the Board of Directors for MAPAPA, participated on the National Coalition of the Arts Council for writing core standards, and was a specialist and writer for the Delaware Committee for Performing Arts Education. Jacalyn teaches both private and group lessons and is an invited instructor for the Howard Pyle Studio, Rehoboth Art League, and the Delaware Valley Division of the Arts in Pennsylvania.
