With the encouragement of friends, I have recently taken time to pursue my lifelong interest in art, most especially watercolor painting, which in addition to my work, is a welcome way to express creativity.
My life’s work has been in the retail ladies fashion business, where I am owner, manager, buyer (and whatever is needed) for JACKSONS LADIES FASHIONS (Facebook), San Angelo, TX. A family business established by my parents in 1952, I grew up working in fabrics & fashion, sewing and altering, creating clothing designs and coordinating displays. Upon their retirement in 1983, I assumed ownership. My boutique offers quality sportswear & dresses, formal & bridal styles, jewelry & accessories. I am happiest being involved with the creative side of retailing such as design & display, fashion shows and promotions, more than the paperwork side. My happiness comes from helping my friends and customers look their best and feel their most special for every day or the most special of days in their lives, and now for creating art!
I hope that you enjoy my art as much as I have enjoyed painting the variety of pieces you see here. Thanks for looking, for your comments and hopefully purchases. Shireen
