Jackie D. Rockwell is a native Dallas creative who began her art eduction at the impressionable age of fifty. After a short career in the Navy and perusing the corporate workforce, it was at Collin College where she gained access to established artists and professional photographers through the Commercial Photography degree program, and where she realized the profound correlation between art and humility.
A life-changing head injury underwrote her shift into early retirement and deeper into art school. Currently, she is pursuing an online B.S. in Digital Cinematography at Full Sail University. Inspired by the activism of fine art photographer Jeanine Michna-Bales and filmmaker Ava DuVernay, and Kobe Bryant’s Oscar win, her artistic vision is best expressed by this quote of early 20th century photographer, Eliot Porter “Sometimes you can tell a large story with a tiny subject.”
