At a very young age, Jacqueline Cash had a fascination for making objects and images. As a child, Cash would often create paper sculptures and apparel for her toys. Although this interest was treated more as an action of play, it was easy to see the creative initiative. Later her inventive implementation was used often in school assignments wherever an outlet for creativity was allowed. Beginning in late adolescents, Cash began to take a higher interest in art classes as elective choices, but it wasn’t until high school where under the nurturing of one art teacher, she became more aware of her natural abilities. From here the love affair with fine art and print making blossomed.
After years of battling with her natural gravitation towards art and a discouragement given towards art as a traditional career, Cash finally gave in and embraced her dream. She immersed herself in every design and studio class she was able to find. Her thirst for information and exposure was palpable. After only one semester of education, Cash was being noticed by her professors as a promising designer with a creative edge for unconventional projects. Cash was invited to teach as a lab assistant and was quickly hired as a junior designer in a small communications firm. One opportunity lead to the next and soon she found herself being sought after by companies and private consumers for freelance work creating innovative promotional and branding projects.
In 2009 she was awarded the “Friends of Arcadia Art Gallery Award” by Arcadia University. During that time she was also chosen to represent the University as an ambassador in Paris, France for the 60th annual Study Abroad Conference. Cash also served as an adviser to the Philadelphia Chapter of AIGA’s education board in 2009 to 2010. In 2012, Cash completed a 3 year MFA program at Marywood University.
Currently, Cash is working as a local Art Director in Northumberland, PA. Her work is most recognized for the creative use of unconventional materials, organic shapes and interesting color pallets. Cash is continuing her interests in mixed media design with freelance design assignments, where she hopes to create a permanent name for herself in the design industry. Read Less
