Jackie Dorsey is an award winning artist based in Athens, Georgia.  Her work has been shown in local, state, national and international shows.  She is a signature member and board member of the Georgia Watercolor Society.  Her work is primarily watercolor and ranges from vibrant and bold landscapes, to realistic still-lifes, to portraiture.  She paints according to the challenge it affords her.

She was and continues to be inspired by the wonderful, active and supportive art community in Athens.

Some of her work can be found on her website: or her business Facebook page including samples of her commissioned portraiture.   Contact her by email for inquiries about commissioning a portrait (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
