OWAA New Coloured Pencil Artist


A new artist has joined the Ottawa West Arts Association (OWAA) and her name is Jackie Raven!

Jackie spent 30 years as a civilian in the Federal public service supporting the Military as a Military Pay Analyst and a Pay Systems Analyst.  She retired from her public service career to allow herself time to pursue her artistic passion.


She has been creative most of her life, but got interested in art in the early 1990’s when she began taking painting classes, that started her love of art.  She attended an art show where she saw a coloured pencil drawing.  She was so amazed she knew she had to learn coloured pencil art. After attending classes, she has developed her coloured pencil talent to a level that allows her to create the pictures that she is proud to present through the Ottawa West Art Association (OWAA), an organization that she’s grateful to be a part of.


The 9th Annual Ottawa West Arts Association (OWAA) Art Sale is happening on October 28th at the OWAA gallery located in the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (1500 Shea Road)

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., residents can view the new exhibits by local artists, learn more about OWAA, and of course buy some artwork!
