About the artist
Jacqueline Unanue was born in Chile, and studied design at the Universidad de Chile de Valparaíso. At that time she became interested in pre-Columbian art, especially the rock art done in her native country. She also traveled to Spain to study the pre-historic paintings of the Altamira caves in the Basque Country.
In addition to numerous individual and group exhibitions in Chile since 1983, she has also been exhibited in Spain, Finland, Ecuador, Argentina, and the United States—in galleries in Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, and New York.
Since her arrival in the United States in 2000, her artistic vision has mainly been expressed through abstract acrylic painting on canvas. She is represented by the 3RD Street Gallery, Philadelphia, PA
