Fine Art


  My goal is to combine Art with the preservation of Nature. I want to create and celebrate beauty and emotion, and give a voice to the part of Nature that cannot speak.

Bio Text EN

My latest “Skylight” Series reflects a perfect moment when we feel that we are a part of Nature. The form traced out by the blue sky represents the central theme of the skylight. In these skylights, wild forms of plants and varieties cultivated by man co-exist. I believe that allowing and supporting this co-existence is the key to saving endangered plant and animal species and all life on earth.

The American Artist Jacklyn Gratzfeld has lived in New York State, Connecticut, Germany and Singapore. She was born in Ilion, New York in 1961. Since July of 2015 she again resides in Southwest Germany.

Her works are mainly found in private collections in the United States, Asia and Europe.
Parallel to her exhibitions she sometimes gives photo presentations which focus on animals, ecology and Art. She completes a children´s workshop on these themes yearly. In 2019 she took time out from exhibiting to finish writing and illustrating the biography of an Asian elephant. This will be available in 2020 in English and German.

She works mainly in oil and pastel. Her subject matter is found in nature. She travels extensively to gather inspiration for her artwork visiting National Parks and animal conservation projects and sanctuaries, combining Art with the preservation of nature.
