Portrait of the Artist: Jakki Annerino

Jakki Annerino is a visual artist and a singer/songwriter/guitar player living in Kitchener, Ontario. She helps run the Black Walnut Folk Club, a Kitchener-Waterloo acoustic music venue.
Jakki is a mostly self-taught artist who likes to convey a sense of whimsy and history in her artwork. She makes collage pendants, wall jewellery, altered books, and greeting cards incorporating various remnants and relics, both natural and vintage, in her work. She is drawn to artifacts from other people’s lives that have been discarded such as old photos, books, antique lace and letters. A dragonfly wing, a bird feather or an intriguing bit of rusted metal may also somehow find its way into her art. She also makes photo greeting cards. Jakki is now exploring encaustic collage and hopes to have several pieces ready for the Central Art Walk.
