Remembering Jackie Abrams

Photo by Jeff Lewis


We mark the passing of a beloved and talented teacher, artist, mentor, and so many other things to so many people. Jackie was most recently an instructor at the NBO Conference in Bowling Green, Kentucky, in 2019. We were all so fortunate to have had her talent and influence in our lives.

Petria Mitchell, co-owner of Mitchell-Giddings Fine arts with her husband, Jim Giddings, says of Abrams, ” I’ve never known
anyone who could think through their fingers as she can – she has learned how to walk creatively on the planet.”

It is our pleasure to share this keepsake profile of Jackie that was featured in the Summer 2012 NBO magazine. (Click on image to read)
