Artist's statement: Born in southern California, started studying art in high school, four years in the Marines. Continued studying art in junior college, switched to literature, and graduated. And then started painting again, and have been doing so ever since. Although studying other disciplines , like sculpture and printmaking, Jaqua has continued with his painting. Subjects have ranged from landscapes done on location, figurative pieces in interiors, abstracts, but mainly ideas inspired by the urban environment. He works primarily in oils, but has, in the last few months, included watercolors, graphic (pencils) work, pastel and clay. There is always something to create, and to let that opportunity evaporate is not an option.
