Bloomington Open Studios Tour

Jackie Olenick

I create both fine art and jewelry in a variety of mediums, including acrylic on canvas and mixed media. I also design a nationally distributed line of sterling silver jewelry. The images I've created over 25 years have manifested as my personal labor of love. I'm inspired by words with a universal message of peace and healing, as well as from dancing through life with my husband Leon, family and friends. It is my aspiration that my images are timeless, true, spiritual in nature and beautiful to gaze upon. My intent is to bring illumination and new modern meanings to the words that resonate with our hearts and souls. Hang the images and wear the jewelry so that when you are engaged in your day to day activity, challenges and journeys, you may have a peek at something which lifts you up and brings a smile to your face!

After living for 20 years in So Florida, I returned to Bloomington last year and I'm delighted to be back in this vibrant community I call home. During my years in Florida, my work was collected by clients all over the world and hangs in houses of worship, lobbies and has appeared countless times on magazine, greeting cards, CD covers and a host of other venues.

My home is located on a bike trail and is handicapped accessible.
