Meet the Artist


Award Winning Artist

Jacelyn Orellana is a Salvadoran American artist, living in Alexandria, VA. Her passion for color and portraiture has led her to create vibrant, award winning paintings that have been featured in gallery exhibitions across the United States of America. 

Teaching Experience

Jacelyn Orellana also has a passion for teaching. In 2020, she hosted her first painting workshop, Nocturnal Gardens, at the Annmarie Sculpture Garden in Solomons, Maryland. Students were given materials and instructions on how to create glowing florals in a vase.
